Leave a legacy

The householder who is a faithful seeker and in whom dwells truth, Dharma, steadiness, and generosity, does not sorrow when he or she passes away.
– The Buddha

Leaving a legacy to Land of Joy is one of the most wonderful gifts you could ever make. You can be sure that any donation you make to us will be used wisely in the development of Land of Joy, ensuring a source of peace, loving-kindness and wisdom for both present and future generations.

Your generosity could make a huge difference to a small charity like Land of Joy and even a little can mean a lot!

For the hereafter, there’s no better friend besides generosity.
–Nagarjuna

There are many types of gift you can leave in a will from a small, set amount of money or a percentage of your whole estate to indeed everything to Land of Joy if you have no dependents.

Whatever you decide to leave us please ensure that the correct wording is used in your will.

So, when mentioning us in your will please include these details:

Land of Joy, Greenhaugh Hall, Greenhaugh, Hexham, Northumberland, NE48 1PP

Registered Charity Number: 1138826

To assist you in making a will we recommend that you use a firm of solicitors. Further information about wills is contained in the Land of Joy Wills factsheet.

If you do decide to leave a gift in your will to Land of Joy, we would love it if you let us know (contact us at info@landofjoy.co.uk), as we would like to have the opportunity to show you how your support will help us. However, this is obviously your choice – there is no obligation to share this information with us if you don’t wish to do so.

After my earthly remains have been dispersed I wonder what it would be like to have done something useful. What a gift – so little effort from me and hopefully hundreds or even thousands will benefit in the future.
– Steve Cragg, Leeds
