Remembering BWP in your Will
You can help more women, children and families survive Domestic Abuse by leaving BWP a gift in your Will.
Every gift will make a difference to a woman, child or young person who needs our support in the future, so if you’re thinking of leaving us a gift, thank you.
You could leave:
A fixed sum – You might choose to leave a fixed amount of money, which is often referred to as a pecuniary gift.
A share of your estate – For example, you could choose to leave 30% or ¼ of your estate to Broxtowe Women’s Project, once all taxes and other payments have been made. This is known as a residuary gift.
Updating your existing Will
If you’ve already written a Will, and you want to add a gift to BWP you can do this by drafting a document called a Codicil. A Codicil is simply an addition, amendment or supplement to your existing Will.
We always recommend consulting a solicitor or legal professional when completing a codicil form to update your Will.
Suggested wording for remembering BWP in your Will
If you choose to remember Broxtowe Women’s Project in your Will, we recommend using the following wording:
I give <the sum of £______> and/or <(all/specify fraction/% share) of the residue of my estate> and/or <specific item> to Broxtowe Women’s Project registered charity in England and Wales (1125946) for its general charitable purposes absolutely.

Thank you for thinking of the women, children and families we support.
