Donate in your will

Leaving a gift in a will helps us to continue what we do best, supporting anyone who has experienced meningitis.

When thinking about your will, we believe it is only right that you think of your loved ones first. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t also help a cause close to your heart.

How your gift will help us

Meningitis is still very much present in our lives and communities and the impact of it will never go away. Every year in the UK there are thousands of cases of this devastating disease and whilst there are vaccines to prevent some forms of the disease there is still no vaccine for the most common meningococcal B strain. Viral meningitis will always be here as it cannot be vaccinated against.

Our aim is for everyone affected by meningitis to have access to support for life and for awareness levels of the disease to be such that lives are saved.

In order to fund our vital work, we rely almost entirely on the generosity of people like you. Without your support we wouldn’t be here and a gift in your will no matter how large or small will make a real difference.

Make a Pledge

Gifts left in wills are really important to Meningitis Now. 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 Meningitis Now 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 Meningitis Now 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 Meningitis Now directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
