Leave a gift in your will

By remembering the Douai Foundation in your will, you can help to support Benedictine educational projects for generations to come.

No matter what size of gift you choose to leave, your support will make a difference. It will go directly to fund educational projects. As we are a small charity with very few overheads, you can feel assured that your gift will make a big difference. It could go towards funding a new project overseas to help with school equipment and resources which will ensure as many children as possible have access to education, or a project closer to home such as funding children in the UK to go on a life-changing pilgrimage to Lourdes. We will ensure it makes a difference.

Thank for you for considering the Douai Foundation. We really appreciate you taking the time to consider supporting us in this way.

How do I leave a gift in my will?

We suggest that you consult a solicitor when either making your will for the first time, or changing any element of your will.

You can rest assured that you have had professional advice and your wishes will be respected.

Can you help me find a solicitor?

As a charity, we are not able to recommend a particular solicitor. Your relevant Law Society can help you to find the details of a solicitor close to you.

For England and Wales, please visit www.lawsociety.org.uk and for Scotland visit www.lawscot.org.uk. Northern Ireland residents can visit www.lawsoc-ni.org.

What information about the Douai Foundation will my solicitor need?

Your solicitor will ask for the charity’s registered address and the Registered Charity Number.

Registered address: The Douai Foundation, Douai Abbey, Upper Woolhampton, Reading RG7 5TQ

Registered charity number: 1194988

Whatever you decide, please don’t forget to tell us. We would love to invite you to be a member of our Friends Club which will mean you are kept up to date with information about the projects the Foundation is working on, as well as an invitation to an annual special event.
