Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation
Here is some more information about how to include the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation in your Will.
The Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF) is a registered charity, established in 1998 to raise public awareness to the condition and it’s associated complications, treatment, avoidance and relief and to provide support to people living with diabetes.
We have three distinct aims:
To finance vital research into diabetes, its causes, treatments and cures;
To support people with diabetes through the Diabetes Wellness Network, providing information
and educational programmes;
To raise public awareness to this increasingly prevalent condition and its associated complications.
The researchers we fund today are working towards a cure and a brighter tomorrow. They rely on our generosity at a time when many research projects are turned away due to lack of funds – in turn we rely on you!
By remembering us in your Will, you can help us continue funding the research that we hope will one day make diabetes a thing of the past.
How you can help
Leaving a legacy to a charity is a wonderful way to leave a mark on the world. Legacies provide the bedrock financial support we rely upon to look ahead and progress effectively – they are invaluable to our long-term future. Without legacies, there is no guarantee that we will be able to continue supporting medical researchers in their quest for a cure, or continue to educate and support those living with diabetes until that time.
Leaving a legacy to DRWF is essentially giving hope to all those people ‘staying well until a cure is found…’.
Wording your Will
By including a charitable bequest to the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation when making your Will, you will be taking a positive step towards finding a cure for diabetes and supporting those who live with the condition. You can choose to leave us a share of your estate or alternatively, set aside a fixed sum.
Be assured that your great act of philanthropy will be well directed and your wish to perpetuate your values after death, fulfilled.
Why should you make a Will?
Making a Will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes will be followed after you die. If you do not make one, part or all of your estate may go to people who you never intended to benefit. Not only that, Inheritance Tax legislation means that, if you don’t prepare properly, a substantial part of what you leave may go to the State. Thankfully, it is easy, quick and inexpensive to have a Will drafted by a qualified professional.
Some things you may wish to consider when making a Will
The care of your children
Trusts – if you would like a person or favourite cause to benefit from your assets – cash, shares or property – then a Trust could be the answer.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you on what would be most suitable for your circumstances.
What should you do now?
Please speak to your solicitor and discuss your plans in detail. You could be making a valuable difference not only to your family and friends, but also the causes you care most about. Think about whether a charity has made a difference by helping you or someone you love and please consider leaving a legacy of hope to the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation.
