All of Britain’s leading charities rely heavily on charitable donations and legacies from their supporters. These can be modest contributions to the general work of the organisation or substantial financial gifts to enable the giver to be permanently honoured as a major supporter of the charity.
Leaving Literature Wales a gift in your will is a powerful way to help ensure the continuing promotion of the literature of Wales. Gifts will assist Literature Wales in protecting its programme of readings and lectures, conferences, day schools, literary dinners and the Young People's Writing Squads which will produce the future writers of Wales.
If you have not yet made a will, then a solicitor [or your bank] will help you make the necessary arrangements. If you have already made your future provisions, then Literature Wales can be included either as an addition [codicil] or as part of any general revision which you may make from time to time.
If you do wish to include Literature Wales amongst your provisions, there are two broad ways in which you can do this:
1. By allocating a specific sum towards Literature Wales' work [pecuniary]
2. By allocating a percentage of your provision to Literature Wales [residuary]
If you feel that you are in a position to make a substantial legacy in Literature Wales' favour, you may like to telephone us for a confidential discussion as to how you might like your contribution to be allocated. It may well be possible to include your name alongside a regular part of Literature Wales' programme of work. Leading figures like Glyn Jones, John Tripp, Rhys Davies and Gwyn Jones already have their names perpetuated in our annual programmes of work.
These matters are, by their nature, sensitive. We would be delighted to hear from you if you decide to support Literature Wales'in this way but we know that many people prefer to keep their plans a matter of personal knowledge only.
If you would like to discuss confidentially any of the ideas raised, please contact Literature Wales' Chief Executive Officer, Lleucu Siencyn who will arrange for prompt discussion of your plans.
