Gifts in wills
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.
Those gifts come in all shapes and sizes. Big ones, small one, 1% of an estate or 100%, or anything left over after the other gifts have been made.
We use them to support people affected by cancer when they most need it. At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, we’ll be there.
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.
