Gifts In

Gifts in wills make up nearly a third of Macmillan’s income. By leaving a gift to Macmillan, you’ll be helping us be there for even more people affected by cancer in the future.

A gift in your will for Macmillan is a gift for everyone. Your family, your friends and even people you’ll never know. People you will want to help because you know how hard it can be when families are affected by cancer.

How Macmillan uses gifts in wills

One third of the money we raise comes from people leaving Macmillan a gift in their will.

These come in all shapes and sizes, big and small - with gifts ranging from £200 to £20,000, from 1% of an estate to 100% or anything left over after other gifts have been made.

We use these gifts to support people affected by cancer when they most need it. At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and we’re here to support you through. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, we’ll be there.

We know that people will keep on getting cancer for a long time still. Even a small gift will help us to give every person who has cancer, and their families, the support they need to take back control and start to feel like themselves again.
