How to a leave a gift in your Will

We know that writing or updating a Will can seem like a daunting task. But it's an important step in ensuring the people and causes you care about are looked after in the way you intend. It's much easier than you may think and doesn't have to cost a penny!

Whether you're writing a Will for the first time, or updating one because of a change in circumstances, it's easy to include a gift to us. There are just a few simple steps you need to follow:

Decide what you'd like to leave

You can leave a percentage share, fixed amount or specific item. Percentage shares don't lose value over time so are the most valuable way to give.

Consider dedicating your gift

You can (but don't have to!) dedicate your gift to a loved one or Supporter Group.

Find a professional

We always recommend finding a professional to write or update a Will, so you can ensure it's legally recognised. But we can help with this! (See below)

Let us know

You can help us better plan for the future by letting us know if you've included us in your Will. We don't need to know how much you're leaving. If you'd like to, email mygift@thebraintumourcharity.org
