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.

The facts and fiction about wills

How Macmillan uses gifts in wills

Almost 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.

In the future, doctors and nurses are going to get much better at diagnosing cancer earlier, and treating it. But the fact is almost half of us will get cancer at some point, and have to go through some tough times before we hopefully get better. And that includes the people we love.

By putting a gift in your will to Macmillan, you can make sure that we will be there for the people you love if they ever need us. With emotional, practical and financial support, given with warmth and expertise, so they can keep on living their life and feeling in control all the way through.
