Leave a gift in your Will to the Medical Research Foundation

In an uncertain world, there are two things we can be sure of:

1) If we don’t fund the scientists, we can’t do the research.

2) If we don’t do the research, we won’t find the answers.

The Medical Research Foundation is the charitable arm of the Medical Research Council (MRC). As a charity, we rely on the generosity of people like you. While we have access to the best scientific advice through our connection with the MRC, support from the public allows us to remain independent and to fund whatever we feel are the most important medical research questions of the time.

A gift in your Will is perhaps the greatest gift you will ever make. It is an expression of your values and priorities – and a message to your loved ones about who you are and how you want to be remembered.

By choosing to leave a gift in your Will to the Medical Research Foundation, you will ensure that quality, impactful and life-changing medical research continues to provide the knowledge that future generations will depend on. While we cannot predict the next global threat to human health, we can prepare for it by funding the scientists of the future. That’s exactly what you can achieve with a gift in your Will – leaving a lasting legacy of scientific excellence for years to come.

Advances in medicine are only made possible as a result of decades of research - and gifts in Wills help give the Foundation the confidence to invest in long-term projects. Your gift could lead to life-changing advances in medicine for future generations.

Caroline and Mike Howes, two of our supporters, say:

“The Foundation’s commitment to discovery science not only offers solutions to immediate research questions, but also advances the whole frontier of biomedical sciences. Leaving a gift in our Wills is a way for us to play our role in helping to make a better world.”
