Gift in your will: Leaving a legacy to the Ménière’s Society
Leaving a legacy to the Ménière’s Society is a lasting gift to a cause that is important to you during your lifetime. Not only will you help us with carrying out our day to day work, your gift can also help us plan for the future of the Ménière’s Society. In the past, larger legacies have enabled us to support research projects which we would not have been able to do otherwise.
The Meniere's Society is pleased to have teamed up with McClure Solicitors who are able to offer a FREE Will Writing Service to our supporters. They also offer a FREE Will Review and Special Price Lasting Powers of Attorney.
How will my Gift be used by the Ménière’s Society?
One important aspect of leaving a gift to Charity under a Will is often overlooked. Such charitable gifts are potentially exempt from Inheritance Tax. If a person’s Estate is subject to Inheritance Tax the value of the gift will reduce the Inheritance Tax bill. For example the sums of £1000 or £10,000 are likely to attract Inheritance Tax relief amounting to £400 and £4000 respectively.
Adding a legacy to your Will
To leave a legacy to the Ménière’s Society you would need to include details in your will or include a Codicil with your existing will. A solicitor could handle this and/or provide further information. A form of codicil to leave a specific gift to the Ménière’s Society can be downloaded here. When including the details of your bequest in your will/codicil, please include our registered charity number. This will ensure that there is no confusion about the charity you would like to receive your gift. The Ménière’s Society’s registered charity number is 297246.
