Gifts in wills
What do you see when you think of your community 50 years from now? If your values align with ours we can help to ensure your vision becomes reality.
Here at Kentish Town City Farm we rely on donations to continue offering the community a free of charge haven in the middle of the city. It has been a struggle and with the possibility of funding cuts in the future we have never needed you more.
You can leave a lasting legacy for future generations by including a charitable gift in your will. After providing your family with security, comfort and stability, you have the ability to give disadvantaged children experiences that would otherwise be inaccessible. You can provide vulnerable adults with a welcoming and nurturing community. Your donation, however big or small has the potential to improve not only individual lives but the entire culture of your neighbourhood.
In the UK bequests account for up to a third of charity income. If this is something you would like to contribute to we’ve made it a little bit easier for you. Tulips Solicitors have partnered with us to offer you a 50% discount on wills when leaving a legacy. (Standard wills reduced from £150 to £75). All you need is the official charity name, the charities address and the registered charity number (all found below). You are not limited to one charity and can donate to all the charities you wish.
Your donation will go towards facing any future challenges and ensuring we remain open access for everybody. It can go towards helping with the running cost of the farm, which is £1000 every single day! Also future projects will be made possible, allowing us to reach out to everyone and continually enrich the community.
If you wish to find out more information, get in contact with our Director, Gus Alston, firstname.lastname@example.org, 02079165421 or pop in for a chat. By enquiring you are in no way obliged to make a donation in your will. We are sensitive to the fact that it is a very important decision and welcome all questions so we can help you make the right decision for you.
If you have come to the decision that you would like to leave us a donation in your will, we are incredibly grateful, it is you, the community that keep the farm alive!
