By leaving a gift to Rowan in your will, you’ll be helping us continue our work with people with learning disabilities. Your support will live on into the future and will ensure many more people come to know and love Rowan.

74% of the UK population supports charities like ours, and when asked, 35% of them say they’d be happy to leave a gift in their will once they’d provided for their family and friends. But only 7% actually do.

Anyone can leave a gift in their will – it is easy to do and you can leave a specific amount or a percentage of your overall estate. Gifts to charities are free from Inheritance Tax and, from 6 April 2012, if you leave 10% of your estate to charity the tax due may be paid at 36% instead of 40%.
