Other Ways to Give

Leave a gift in your Will

When you leave a gift in your Will to Borderline, you give a lifeline to homeless Scots across London at a time they need it most.

Why I left a gift in my Will to Borderline

One of our supporters, Etienne, explains, “I found it surprisingly difficult to think about leaving a gift in my will. I didn’t know why: I absolutely believe in the work Borderline is doing, and it is critical that it should carry on. Homelessness is getting worse and I have seen for myself, as a supporter, how intervention by Borderline caseworkers can turn someone’s life round.

When I thought about it more, I realised that the stumbling block was actually writing a will, because it involves thinking about death, which is never easy. I had been putting it off for years. But when I went to a solicitor recently to finally do it, it turned out to be very straightforward.

When it was all done, I felt relieved. I have no intention of dying soon, and I plan to support Borderline in other ways. But now I know that, whatever happens, I will have made a small but lasting contribution.”
This frank account by Etienne highlights some of the difficulties we all face when considering leaving a gift in our Will. That is probably why only 7% of the population actually take that positive step, and only one third will even write a Will. But this does not have to be the case.
