Leaving a gift

Leaving a gift in your will

If you love gardens and garden visiting you can help inspire that passion in future generations by leaving a gift in your will to the National Garden Scheme.

After providing for those closest to you, a charitable gift is a very personal way to ensure the things that matter most to you live on, while inspiring your family and friends with the values or causes you hold most dear.

Your gift will help the National Garden Scheme to continue to uncover new gardens each year, open their gates to even more visitors and give people the opportunity to discover a lifelong love of garden visiting.

And by welcoming increasing numbers of visitors to our gardens, we will be able to raise even more money to fund the vital work of nursing and health charities into the future.

Whether you’d like to include the National Garden Scheme in your will or not, it’s important that your will reflects your wishes. It doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming to start a will or update a current one – simply speak to a legal adviser who can help you though the process.

'I love visiting beautiful National Garden Scheme gardens, and I have also been a volunteer for many years which has been immensely rewarding. The National Garden Scheme provide such valuable funding to nursing and health charities and I hope my modest legacy will help them continue for many years to come.'
Graham, National Garden Scheme volunteer and garden visitor
