Leave A Legacy

It may come as a surprise to learn that the Legacy or gifts supporters leave the IPCC in their Wills play a vital part in the key areas of our work – buying raised bogs, blanket bogs and fens. Remembering IPCC  by leaving a bequest – no matter how small – is a wonderful way of ensuring that the beauty and wonders of the bog continue to enrich our lives in the future.

It is a gift for which you will be remembered, for a very long time to come. Such a gift will allow you to continue helping the environment in perpetuity.

Residuary Bequest: the remainder of your estate once relations and family have been looked after.

Specific Bequest: a fixed donation

Codicil: adds a bequest to an existing will.
