Information for Charities building legacies

Helping Charities to increase legacy gifts 

Legacy Life Cover is partnering with charities to build more legacies that will help you change lives.

Our mission is to help our customers build a bright, safe future for their loved ones – and for the causes they care about. By working with charities such as yours, we hope to build on this ethos, empowering you to create legacies that we can all be proud of.

By partnering with Legacy Life Cover you can give your supporters access to a valuable service, which can save them money each month and that also unlocks legacy gifts for the future. We are like a social enterprise, and everything we do is aimed at giving something back to the community, so get in touch to see how we can help.

The Legacy Life Cover team is now partnering with charities to build more legacies that will help you to change lives.

    How does it work?

    When our customers take out a life insurance policy with us, we include an additional sum of up to £10,000 worth of cover – for free. This can then be left as a gift to their favourite charity.

    This is at no extra cost to the customer or the nominated charity. It is our way of saying thank you and empowering our customers to make a lasting difference to a cause close to their heart.

    The gift is written into a trust in the life insurance policy and when the policy becomes payable, on their passing, the funds are donated directly to the nominated charity.

      Crisis

      Legacy Life Cover supports Crisis, the national charity for homeless people. Crisis works side by side with thousands of people every year, to help them rebuild their lives and leave homelessness behind for good.
