Bequests to the Rule Foundaton

Making a legacy in your will does not affect your income during your lifetime. However, you can continue to assist our work from your afterlife! A gift through your will can be for a specific amount, or part of your estate, or the residue (what’s left over) after distributions, or any kind of property or realisable (sellable) assets.

Unless you request otherwise, we will add your legacy to our capital base to increase the amount we earn each year from investment income. Please contact us if you have questions about how to make a bequest to the Foundation.
