Capacity Marketing for Charities

Free Wills Month

A free Will-writing service with a proven record of generating legacy pledges to the sponsoring charities.

Generally, one third of charity income is from legacy gifts and many of these legators are previously unknown to the charities. Free Wills Month taps into that type of supporter, undiscovered by the charity but passionate for the cause.

Running since 2005, Free Wills Month is addressed to the general public and raises around £15 million of future income for sponsoring charities per campaign. Charities receive details of every pledge and pledger, with 9 out of 10 of these being new contacts to the organisations.
