Thanks to the support of thousands of people like you, for the last 40 years we’ve helped protect and defend Scotland’s environment. We need to keep campaigning on issues such as air pollution, climate change and plastics and continue to be Scotland’s leading voice for the planet.

After providing for your loved ones in your will, please consider leaving us a share of what is left and help turn the vision of a healthy, fair, Fossil Free Scotland into a reality. Leaving a gift in your will is easy, see below for further information or email kbell@foe.scot.

There are three main types of legacies:

Residuary legacy – The amount left over in your estate after all other pecuniary legacies and gifts have been made and administrative costs have been deducted.

Pecuniary legacy – A specific or fixed sum of money.

Specific legacy – An item or share of an item such as your house, car, jewellery, shares etc.

If you already have a will, it is possible to add a charitable legacy using a simple form called a codicil. Your solicitor should advise you to ensure that your legacy is recorded correctly.

To ensure Friends of the Earth Scotland receives your gift, please provide your solicitor or will writer with the following information. Registered name: Friends of the Earth Scotland. Registered office: 5 Rose Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PR. Charity number: SC003442.

We recognise that making a will is a personal decision and fully respect your privacy. However, if you have decided to include Friends of the Earth Scotland in your will, we would be very pleased to have the opportunity to acknowledge and thank you now. To discuss your legacy plans, please contact Kerrigan Bell, kbell@foe.scot. Thank you.
