leaving a legacy gift
A gift to Dhanakosa in your will means the connection you feel to Dhanakosa will continue to have positive benefits long after your death. Your gift will make a real difference to Dhanakosa, enabling us to continue to offer life-changing retreat experiences and to take care of and improve this precious place that is a spiritual home for so many.
Hear from one of our trustees, Candrika, in the video below, on why she has chosen to include Dhanakosa in her will.
It’s easier to write a will than you may think. You can draft it yourself, but most people find it helpful to use a lawyer or professional will writer. Contact a local lawyer and let them know you want to write a will or update your existing will to include a gift to Dhanakosa. They will help you think through issues such as tax, and make sure that your will is valid.
You can leave a particular amount of money, or a percentage. A fixed amount may devalue over time, so many people choose to leave a percentage of the residuary of their estate. Your lawyer will help you choose what is best for you. If you’re in the UK, a solicitor may charge between £100 and £200 for a simple will. You’ll need to know these details for your will:
Our name - Dhanakosa Trust
Our address - Dhanakosa Buddhist Retreat Centre, Balquhidder, Lochearnhead FK19 8PQ
Our Scottish charity number - SCO32776
Please get in touch if you have any questions or wish to let us know your plans.
