I don’t understand the difference between the types of gifts – can you help me?
A residuary gift is a share of the balance of your estate once all other payments have been made. For example, you could pledge 1% of your estate to Toynbee Hall.  A pecunicary gift is a fixed sum of money that does not change. A specific gift is an item such as personal possessions, land, buildings or shares. For example, you could pledge a painting to Toynbee Hall.
