Free Will Schemes


Initially pioneered by Will Aid and adopted by the two major cancer charities in 1990s, free will services (FWS) are now a mainstay of charity legacy fundraising in the UK. The term ‘free will’ is an umbrella term for a wide variety of partnerships and activities, from discounted wills, donations in lieu of fees, charity paid for wills, or pro-bono wills that are completely free to the charity and donor. At the root of all free will services, the consumer is offered the opportunity to write or update their Will, with the hope that they will leave a gift to a charity in return. This training course aims to explain the various available Free Will Service models and to help you evaluate whether this could be part of your legacy fundraising strategy.
