See a few of ideas – if you can think of some of your own,
please let us know.
1..Offer your services in an auction of promises or auction off your
favourite football shirt or other valuable item!

3. Organise a car boot sale or cake stall and donate the proceeds.
4. Persuade your boss to make a company donation or to hold an
EVERYONE CAN LEAVE
THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
Naturally, the interest of close relatives and
friends will come first when you are making a Will, but many people
leave the residue (or part of the residue) of their estate to a
charity. This is called a residuary bequest. With one pound going
ten times as far when providing care in Romania your legacy could help
patients for many years to come.
By making a bequest in this way, your gift will keep pace with
inflation and will be just as valuable in years to come as it is the
day you make your Will.
DO I CHANGE MY WILL?
If you have changed your mind fundamentally
about who benefits from your Will, or if your estate changes a great
deal in value, you may be best advised to make an entirely new Will. We
usually suggest that you ask a Solicitor to draft your Will, especially
if it is complicated.
If you are only making minor changes, you can add a short instruction
known as a Codicil, to your existing Will. This is a good way of adding
new legacies for a number of different causes if you wish.
Here is the suggested wording for a residuary bequest should you wish
support Association P.A.V.E.L. (Romania):
"I give, to the Association P.A.V.E.L., Sos. Mihai Bravu 311-313,
Bl.SB1, Sc. 1, Ap. 1, Sector 3,Bucharest, Romania (Registered Charity
Permit: 885/96 ;Registration no: 4/91944 ) (enter the word "all" or the
size of the share ) of the residue of my estate for its
general charitable purposes, and I further direct that the receipt of
the Executive Director or other proper officer of the said charity
shall be a good discharge for the same".
If you prefer you can leave Association
P.A.V.E.L. a set sum of money or a specific gift. This is called a
pecuniary legacy/ specific legacy.
Tax Efficient Giving
Have you ever thought about giving shares to
charity? Many people from around of the world who own shares are
not aware that this is a very tax efficient way of supporting your
Many people hold small numbers of shares that may be uneconomic to
sell. Some may have shares that are just gathering dust.
Others may have ‘windfall shares’ as a result of privatisation.
A few will have a whole portfolio of share investments. It doesn’t
matter which category you are in, you can make a big difference to
Association P.A.V.E.L. in this way!
Significant tax incentive was introduced in Europe, for instance, to
encourage people to donate shares to charity. In most cases, when
donors give publicly quoted shares to charity, or sell them to the
charity at a price below the market value, they can now get relief
against their personal income tax bill. This is in addition to
exemption from capital gains tax on the gains they may have made on
those shares. This means that giving shares could be both an act
of generosity as well as a shrewd financial decision.
There is a very simple procedure to make a gift of shares to
Association P.A.V.E.L. (Romania). Ask for further details in your
Land or Buildings
There is a tax incentive that allows individuals
to make gifts of land or buildings to a UK charity or sell them at a
price below the market value (on condition that they charity is willing
to accept the gift).
Relief is given for the market value of the property/land and this is
offset against the donor’s income chargeable to income tax in the tax
year in which the gift is made.
For example, in UK, if land valued at £25,000 was donated to the
charity and the cost of transferring the land was £1,000, then
£26,000 would be offset against the donor’s income that
year. For many people this could generate a significant saving in
This applies to both land and buildings whether freehold or leasehold,
providing the whole of the donor’s interest in the property is given to
charity (e.g. they cannot continue to live in the property, nor can
they donate half of their interest).
Donations of this kind may be rare, but they can produce significant
outcomes for patients in Romania.
