Leave a gift to Street League in your will

By leaving a gift in your will to Street League you will be transforming the lives of unemployed young people in the UK for generations to come.

Last year we progressed four unemployed young people per day into employment. Your support means that we can move even more young people into employment, so they can look forward to a happy, fulfilling future.

Your legacy will be a more productive, healthier society. Young people getting the skills and qualifications to gain sustained employment. Young people becoming active members of society. A healthier future generation that take part in regular sport and engage with their local communities. Your legacy is their brighter future.

What can a gift in my will do?

A gift in your will can pay for the staffing, kit, qualifications and pitch hire that support an unemployed young person like Darren into employment. It can cover the cost for a young person to attend for a day, or for an Academy programme for a whole year. Whatever amount you decide to leave will make a positive impact on a young persons life.

After you’ve looked after family and friends, please consider to Street League

Putting a gift in your Will to Street League does not mean neglecting your family and friends. Of course you can put them first. But if there is any room for a legacy to the Street League, this will make a profound difference to young person like Darren. Any amount you can give will mean that we can improve the prospects of a young person.

How to leave a gift in your will

Whatever your reason for choosing to support Street League you will be helping to create a brighter future for thousands of young people.

We recommend consulting a solicitor when making or changing a Will. Should you be interested, as part of the Remember a Charity consortium we offer a discount will writing service. More information can be found here.

There are several kinds of gifts you can give. These include:

Residuary legacy
Read more
The whole or a share/ percentage of whatever remains from your estate once all other gifts and expenses have been deducted. This is the most flexible type of gift and combats inflation because the value of your gift increases automatically.

Pecuniary legacy
Read more
A set sum of money. Please be aware that a pecuniary legacy won’t keep its value in line with inflation unless your Will states the gift is to be ‘index-linked’, which means the sum of money will be linked to the index of retail prices.

Specific legacy

A specific item like a house, painting, memorabilia, a piece of jewellery or an antique.

If you decide to leave a gift in your Will to Street League, here is our suggested wording for the two most common types of gift – residuary legacies and pecuniary legacies.
