    Here are the basics:

    1. Decide your gift.  Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support Kevin Heinze GROW.  There are a number of different ways you can remember Kevin Heinze GROW in your Will, depending on your circumstances.  A share of your estate, also known as a residuary gift:  the residue of your estate is what remains of the estate once all your loved ones and charges have been paid.  A residuary gift could be a percentage or the whole of the residue of your estate.  Just 1, 2, 5% or more of your estate can make a big difference.  A fixed sum of money, also known as a pecuniary gift: this is when you leave an exact sum of money to us.  It may be of interest to note that the value of this will decrease over time with inflation.  A specific gift: you may wish to leave us a particular item which can be sold to support our work.  It could be property or an item of value such as real estate, art, or a piece of jewellery.  
    2. Making a will.  Your Will is an important document that must be properly prepared and executed.  We recommend using a solicitor to make sure your Will is legal and valid.
    3. Notify loved ones and Kevin Heinze GROW.  We appreciate that family and loved ones should always come first, and believe that it is an important step to talk to family and loved ones about your Will. Communication will help to assist your final wishes are carried out.
