Leave a legacy
Remember Stonewall Housing with a gift in your will and help future generations of LGBT+ people to live in safe homes.
Since 1983, Stonewall Housing has been providing safe spaces for LGBT+ people fleeing violence, harassment and abuse. Making your gift in your Will, would help us give LGBT+ people in the future, the opportunity to live free from fear, in spaces where they can celebrate their identity and achieve their full potential.
There are many ways to leave a gift in your will, and you should always consult your solicitor/and or your financial advisor first. They will be able to provide guidance to balance your personal and charitable intentions.
Common types of legacy gifts include:
A gift of the remainder of the estate after all other bequests have been made and debts cleared is called a residuary bequest.
A gift of a fixed sum of money in your Will is called a pecuniary bequest. The value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time, as the cost of living increases.
A particular named item of value left as a gift in your Will, is known as a specific bequest for example a piece of artwork or property.

Stonewall Housing is extremely grateful for the support we gain from corporate partners. It’s essential for the work we do, helping us to understand other perspectives which we can learn from. It helps our clients to raise their aspirations, expand their opportunities and bridge the gap between their current circumstances and the future they hope for.
We can offer new ways to address your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goals, by providing volunteering opportunities for your employees, which will make a tangible impact on the lives of vulnerable LGBT+ people, and advance LGBT+ awareness and inclusion.
