Can you help us by Fundraising
There are many different ways of fundraising for the BKPA. Whilst some of our supporters like to hold local social events, others take on personal challenges which include running, cycling and climbing. Every pound makes a difference and helps us to improve the quality of life for kidney patients.
Supporting your fundraising
Please contact us if you need any advice or support with your fundraising.
LEAVE A LEGACY
If you have already made a Will, but would like to leave a gift to the British Kidney Patient Association, you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing Will. This is called a Codicil. If you do not have a Will at the present time, we recommend that you seek the advice of a solicitor. Although you will have to pay a fee, you will receive sound professional advice and can be sure that your wishes will be carried out.
There are two different types of legacy:
- A pecuniary legacy. This is a gift of a fixed sum of money. There is no minimum amount that can be left.
- A residuary legacy. This is a gift of the whole or a share of whatever remains of your estate once you have provided for your loved ones and any debts have been paid off.
Will you pay tax on your legacy?
Most gifts made during your lifetime are tax-free, as long as you make them at least seven years before your death. If you don’t, inheritance tax will be taken from all that you own above the current threshold amount.
A gift to a registered charity, however, is always free from inheritance tax. So a legacy to the BKPA would effectively reduce any tax you have to pay.
Walking, cycling, or swimming are great ways to raise funds.

It's as simple as making a call. Your car will then be collected and either sold at auction or for scrap. All the Funds (minus administration) will come to the BKPA.
