Legacy Giving

As our population ages, more families are facing challenges in planning the succession of family wealth. The greatest challenge is to maintain harmony within the family through a well-crafted will. Families are also facing significant risks of getting scammed when a spouse is left alone after the demise of the other spouse. Can family assets be protected by leveraging current Estate Planning tools such as wills, Trust and a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)?

Leaving a legacy to a charity is a meaningful way to extend your beliefs beyond your own lifetime. Your generosity will ensure the longevity and continuity of care for people who require long term aid, thereby giving each beneficiary a beautiful and lasting memorial. Your legacy of love for vulnerable families will give them the hope and strength to meet the many trials and tribulations in their way. 

A good way to help is to leave a percentage of what is left of your estate or assets, or leave a stated sum of money. If you have already made a will, but want to add a residuary gift to the Singapore Red Cross Society, your solicitor can advise you on how you can do this without affecting the specific gifts you leave your family and friends. If you would like more information about leaving a gift in your will or naming the Singapore Red Cross Society in your will or trust, please email pd@redcross.sg.
