Gift of a specific amount (pecuniary gift)

Where the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has kindly been left a specific sum of money (for instance £1,000) please provide us with the following information

  • The Executors name and contact details
  • The deceased’s full name and last address (this will also allow us to stop future mailings being sent to the property)
  • A copy of the Will
  • Any information about the reason for the legacy.

Gift of a percentage or share of the estate (residuary gift)

Where the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has generously been left a percentage of an estate, the procedure for dealing with these gifts are often more complex. As a residual beneficiary we will require additional information before the gift is paid to us.

It’s also helpful to make contact with us as early as possible so we may discuss the administration with you and provide you with helpful guidance where necessary.

Please provide us with the following information:

  • The Executors name and contact details
  • The deceased’s full name and last address (this will also allow us to stop future mailings being sent to the property)
  • A copy of the Will
  • Any information about the reason for the legacy
  • A schedule of the Assets and Liabilities at the date of death
  • If the deceased owned any property, details of the property and two or more valuations
  • A copy of the final Estate Accounts at the end of the administration.

Please rest assured that your details as Executor will not be added to any mailing lists as a result of contacting us about a gift in a Will.
