Being the executor of a Will can seem overwhelming, so we have put together some information about The Christie to help you.
Thank you for everything you are doing as guardian of such a wonderful gift!
An executor is the person or organisation appointed to carry out the wishes of the person who has made the Will.
A beneficiary is a person or organisation who receives a gift from a Will.
Get in touch
If you are the executor of a Will and it includes a gift to The Christie, please get in touch with Hannah at The Christie.
Legacy officer, Hannah Taylor, 0161 446 3979 firstname.lastname@example.org
What we’ll ask from you
We want to help in any way we can as there are legal steps to follow and important information required by beneficiaries:
- The name and address of the person that has given us a gift in their Will
- A copy of the Will (or the relevant sections), where it shows the executors’ authority to act and any special wishes relating to the gift
- The amount that has been given (or the percentage)
- By law, executors must provide all beneficiaries with estate accounts if the gift is residuary (a percentage or portion of an estate)
Send the gift to The Christie
When the time comes, we can provide you with details to make a bank payment.
Alternatively, please make a cheque payable to: The Christie Charitable Fund
Please post cheques to:
The Christie Charitable Fund
2-4 Candleford Road
Please use reference ‘Legacy – [Surname of Deceased]’ with the bank payment or cheque to help us identify and acknowledge the gift.
When we receive the funds, we will send you an acknowledgement using the details you have provided.
Remember, you can also seek legal and other professional advice to help you with your role as an executor, as well as getting basic advice from the beneficiary/Charity.
The Christie NHS Foundation Trust is the trustee of The Christie charity. If the Will names the Trust rather than The Christie charity, the money will still go to the same place.
Some Wills may also name The Christie Hospital & Holt Radium Institute. This is a historical name for The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.
