How to donate

We welcome all contributions to the CITMA Benevolent Fund

There are a number of ways you can donate to the CITMA Benevolent Fund. We welcome all contributions, no matter how large or small. 

Individual and firm donations

You and your firm can contribute towards the Fund and benefit from ‘Gift Aid’. For every £1 donated we can claim a further 28p. Higher rate tax payers can also claim relief for the difference between the lower and higher rates.

Legacy donations

We encourage you to consider leaving a legacy to the Fund when writing or changing your will. 

This could be a specific sum, a percentage of your estate, or the balance of the estate after all other bequests have been met. 

Our suggested wording to leave a share of your estate (residuary legacy) is:

'Subject to the payment of my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give (the whole/insert percentage value) of my estate not otherwise disposed of by this my Will to The Chartered Institute of Trade  Mark Attorneys Benevolent Fund, 5th Floor, Outer Temple, 222-225 Strand, London WC2R 1BA, for the general purposes of The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys Benevolent Fund, and I declare that the receipt of their treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.'

Our suggested wording to leave a specific sum (pecuniary legacy) is:

'I give free of tax to The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys Benevolent Fund the sum of £________ for the general purposes of The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys Benevolent Fund, and I declare that the receipt of their treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.'

Our suggested wording to leave a specific item is:

'I give to The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys Benevolent Fund, absolutely (write in here whatever you wish to give) for the purpose of The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys Benevolent Fund, and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.'
