Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Pass on the gift of education to future generations by leaving a legacy gift to Link in your will.

After you’ve taken care of your family and loved ones, you might want to consider leaving a gift in your will to support the life-changing work of Link. 

Improving education is a process that constantly evolves. By remembering Link in your will you’re ensuring that our good work can continue into the future, giving hope to marginalised communities and helping children build brighter futures.

For children living in sub-Saharan Africa, quality education is the key to a better life, and its advantages can last for generations. Please help us give these children the chance they deserve.

Inheritance Tax

Leaving a gift in your will to a charity like Link is not subject to inheritance tax and can substantially reduce any inheritance tax that may be due on your estate. Furthermore, if you were to leave 10% of your estate or more to Link, the rate of inheritance tax charged on the rest of your estate which passes to friends or family could be reduced to 36% under special new rules for wills which include a legacy to charity.
