Leaving a gift in your will to Macmillan can help us prepare for the future.
From time to time, we all think about what kind of legacy we want to leave. Lots of supporters choose to make Macmillan a part of theirs by leaving gifts in their wills. Of course we understand that your family comes first, but many of our supporters choose to leave a percentage of what’s left over.
When people leave a percentage of their estate to Macmillan, the donation can even go up in value over time. Whether you choose to leave 1% or 99% of your estate, we’re hugely honoured and grateful because it all helps to support people affected by cancer.
Michelle decided to leave Macmillan a gift in her will because we were there to support her father. She says: 'Not long after he was diagnosed, we knew dad wasn’t going to come home. Knowing I could talk to Macmillan meant I didn’t feel so alone. Not long after dad died, I updated my will with a gift to Macmillan.
'You don’t have to be rich. You don’t have to have thousands and thousands of pounds. But whatever you can give, it makes a difference.’
