Leave a Legacy
There are few people who can afford to make substantial cash gifts during their lifetime, but many can make a big difference when leaving a legacy donation.
Leave a legacy in your will and you are leaving a gift of a lifetime that will help Palestinians, many of whom are living on a meagre £1 a day.
A legacy doesn't have to be for a lot of money; for people living in poverty, every donation is important. So please consider MAP when you decide who you would like to benefit from your will.
Make a will
Making a Will doesn't have to be costly or complicated. The best way to make a will is through your solicitor or legal adviser. If you do not have a legal adviser, visit The Law Society website to find a solicitor in your area.
Update your will
If you already have a will, the simplest way to make alterations is by making a Codicil. This is an instruction that is kept with your existing Will and which your solicitor can draw up.
Types of legacies
Residuary. This is the remainder of your estate once other legacies, debts, taxes and expenses have been paid. A gift to MAP can be all or part of the residue of your estate.
Pecuniary. This is a fixed sum of money.
Reversionary. This is left to the descendent but reverts to the charity of your choice after after their death.
Make a Pledge
You do not have to let us know if you have left a legacy in your will to MAP, although we greatly appreciate it if you can. This does not place you under any obligation - it simply gives us an indication of future support and helps MAP to plan for the longer term.
Complete the pledge form (click 'download pdf') and return it to us, or simply drop us an email and let us know of your intentions. Any information you do give will be treated in the strictest confidence.
By remembering MAP, you will be giving substantial practical support to a cause that you strongly believe in.
Thank you for your generous support.
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 Medical Aid for Palestinians 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 Medical Aid for Palestinians directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
