A gift in your will to Macmillan is a gift for everyone
Legacies change lives
When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life. Whether it’s concerns about who you can talk to, planning for the extra costs or what to do about work, at Macmillan we understand how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything.
So when you need someone to turn to, we’re here. Right from the moment you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we’re a constant source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you take back control of your life.
When the time is tight, you can do something to help. We can all be part of the team. 96% of our fundraising comes from voluntary donations, a third of which is from gifts in wills. Large or small, every gift left to Macmillan helps to improve the lives of people affected by cancer today, and for generations to come.
Ask us about wills, legacies and the vital difference they make in funding Macmillan’s services.

Making or Updating Your Will
Whatever your age, an up to date, professionally written will is incredibly important. It’s the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after you die and that your family and friends are provided for in the way you intend.
What’s more, making or updating your will is easier and more affordable than you may think. This guide will help you prepare what you’ll need before making or updating your will with your solicitor.
Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Macmillan Cancer Support. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.
Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Macmillan Cancer Support to confidently estimate future support for their cause.
Leave a Legacy
If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.
To leave a legacy to Macmillan Cancer Support please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.
Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.
If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Macmillan Cancer Support directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
