Leave a gift in your will

By leaving a donation to The Brain Charity in your will, you’ll be ensuring your legacy has a lasting impact.

If you decide to remember our cause in this way, thank you. We are hugely grateful for your support.

How to leave a gift in your will

When writing a will, please ask your solicitor to use our full name and details, to ensure we receive your generous gift. These are: The Brain Charity, Norton Street, Liverpool, L3 8LR. Registered Charity Number: 1114999

When leaving a gift in your will, you also need to consider which type of gift to give. This could be a fixed amount, or a percentage of the value of your estate.

Your solicitor can also help you think about who your executors and guardians should be and work out the value of your estate. Anything left to charity is also free of Inheritance Tax.
