What gifts can I leave?
This type of gift is a share of your estate, for example 5%. Many people divide their estate into equal units. After giving to family and loved ones, they gift several units to FearFree. Unlike a cash gift, leaving a share of your estate means your gift won't devalue over time.
A cash gift, known as a pecuniary gift, is a fixed sum of money, for example £10,000. These gifts are paid out of your estate first. What is left is then divided up as per your instructions in your will.
A specific gift is a nominated object, for example antiques or artwork. This can be a good way to ensure treasured object are passed down to family members.
