Mark your life in a special way by leaving a gift to The CAIRN Trust
Leaving a gift to The CAIRN Trust is a unique way to mark your life and demonstrate your commitment to helping vulnerable children in Nepal.
You will be helping to fund The CAIRN Trust's vital projects to educate children in their rural communities for many future generations.
Why make a Will?
It is important to make a will to ensure your wishes are honoured. If you die without making a legal will, the crown courts decide what happens to your estate.
Having a will also makes life easier for those left behind.
With professional help, you can minimise the amount of inheritance tax payable on your estate while also helping The CAIRN Trust to ensure our work can continue in the future.
What are the options?
There are three main types of legacies. You can give a share of your estate, a specific sum of money or a specific item. Of these gifts, a share of an estate is very important to us as it usually maintains or increases value over time.
Amending an existing will?
A codicil is a document on which changes or additions are made to an existing will and must be read in conjunction with it. If you would like to include The CAIRN Trust in your existing will, complete a Codicil form and send it to your solicitor.

Gifts through Life Insurance
A gift through your life insurance policy is another simple way to make a charitable gift. You may have a life insurance policy that is no longer needed to provide for your family or for other expenses. You can name The CAIRN Trust as a beneficiary of your policy, or you can make a gift of the entire policy. Your solicitor can help you get started with a gift through life insurance.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust or CRT is an arrangement in which a donor’s assets provide a regular income stream to the donor, until that income is no longer required. The assets of the trust are then passed on to a charity like The CAIRN Trust. Please speak to your solicitor on how to set this up.
