Type of gifts

Your Will is a precious document that ensures you take care of your family and friends after you’re gone. Once they are looked after, you can also include a gift to a charity and continue your support beyond your lifetime.

Any gift, even a small percentage of your estate, puts us in a stronger position to help the most critically ill and injured people in an emergency. There are several types of gifts you can choose to leave us.

If you need a solicitor, you can search for one through the Law Society, the Yellow Pages, a public library or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.Before you visit your solicitor it’s important to decide who will inherit what and when. Making your wishes clear makes it easier for your loved ones to deal with your affairs after your death.

Our Gifts in Wills information pack includes a planner that may help. You can request a pack using the enquiry form.

If you decide to include a gift to Thames Valley Air Ambulance in your Will, your solicitor will need our charity name, registered charity address and number, as well as the details of the gift type and amount you’d like to give.

Inheritance tax is based on the value of a person’s estate upon their death. The ‘nil rate band’ or ‘inheritance tax threshold’ is the value of the estate that is exempt from inheritance tax. You could decrease the amount of inheritance tax by 4% if you choose to leave 10% or more of your estate to charity. For further information about inheritance tax, visit www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax. For all tax advice, we suggest you get in touch with a solicitor.
