Leave a legacy: The gift that keeps on giving!
Remembering DPM in your will is a wonderful way to invest in God’s Kingdom and many people find it is an opportunity to make a gift more significant than they could have given during their lifetime.
You do not have to be wealthy to leave a legacy – and DPM understands that you will want to make provision for your loved ones first. But, please be assured that a legacy gift of any size will be appreciated and, in our hands, will bear fruit in the lives of many Christians and churches around the world. Whatever the value of your gift, it will go a long way to help someone who needs it.
What will be your legacy?
In the words of Colin Dye, Senior Minister at Kensington Temple, “Derek Prince ministered the Word of God as no other Bible teacher of our generation. His Bible insights and his deep commitment to the Holy Spirit has left us a deep and lasting legacy.”
Types of gifts
There are different ways to remember DPM in your will, depending on your circumstances:
- A residuary gift
A residuary gift allows you to leave DPM a share of your estate, once your family has been taken care of. The advantage of leaving a residuary gift is that it remains the same over time, and you won’t need to change your will to keep up with inflation.
- A pecuniary gift
A pecuniary gift allows you to leave a specific amount of money to DPM.
- A reversionary gift
A reversionary gift allows you to leave your estate to your dependents while they are living, but after they pass away it will revert to DPM.
- A specific gift
A specific gift is where a particular item is bequeathed. This could include stocks and shares, property, furniture or jewellery
