The kind of gifts you can leave to Oxfam
A share of your estate (Residuary Legacy)
Once you've worked out what you're leaving to family and friends, you can donate a share, or all of what's left.
A specific sum of money (Pecuniary Legacy)
If you want to leave a lump sum to Oxfam, you specify this amount in your will.
A specific item
Jewellery, a first edition book, or any item that you think will be of some value to Oxfam's work when sold.
Already have a will?
Great. If you already have a will and want to leave a legacy gift to Oxfam, all you have to do is make a codicil. And don't worry about the fancy Latin word, it just means 'amendment'. So speak to your solicitor about making a codicil to your existing will, and they'll take it from there.
