Gifts in wills

Support our survivors, leave something to survive you

Did you know that it's possible to give some money in your will to charity and still leave 95% for your family and loved ones?

Leaving a gift to RISE is a true legacy because domestic violence and abuse destroys lives, often through generations, and can be a hard cycle to break free from. With one in four women affected it’s almost as prevalent as cancer.

Gifts in wills are most commonly left for cancer, lifeboat and animal charities, but we need your help too.

Make a will online, for free, here.

Domestic abuse is the issue that’s been behind closed doors. It’s tricky to talk about. There’s secrecy and shame. And yet you’ll know someone that’s been affected, whether you know it or not.

RISE has, for over 25 years, been striving for freedom from physical, emotional, psychological, financial abuse and coercive control.

But no difficult journey can be undertaken alone, and a gift in your will will help re-build the futures of women and children in the beautiful city of Brighton and Hove we call home.

Your money will go towards safe housing in our refuge, our helpline, and therapy services – all with a view to our survivors being able to build healthy and happy relationships for future generations to come.

Types of gifts

We've teamed up with the fantastic Make a Will Online so that you can make a will quickly and easily at no cost! You can do this here and every will is checked by a qualified solicitor. You'll also have access to their helpline in case you have any questions, and are entitled to three free updates and an ‘aftercare’ package once your will has been made. If you choose to disclose your name and email address to us we can get in touch to say “thank you” and make sure you know what we’re up to in future.

Despite all the legal jargon, leaving a legacy is easy. Here’s how…
