Make a Difference
Include us in your Will
Leaving a gift to the UKSCF in your will is a great way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime. After considering your family and friends, you could leave a lasting legacy by bequeathing a gift to the UK Stem Cell Foundation. Your gift could help ensure that this most promising area of medical research, with the ability to treat so many devastating conditions, realises its true potential. Also, leaving a gift to charity has the added bonus of being free of inheritance tax.
The next time you are updating your will, why not ask your solicitor or financial adviser about leaving a legacy to the Foundation? There are several types of legacy that you could consider, which would take into account your own circumstances. These include:
- A residuary legacy – this type of legacy would involve leaving a gift of the remainder or a percentage of your estate after all other legacies and payments have been made.
- A pecuniary legacy – this would involve bequeathing a fixed sum of money as a gift to charity. As it would be a fixed sum, the value of the legacy would reduce over time as the cost of living increases.
- A specific legacy would involve a particular item of value being left to the Foundation. This could be, for example, a property, an artwork or a piece of jewellery.
- A life interest legacy is where a surviving dependant can benefit from the gift, for example a house or a fund, during their lifetime. This could be done by setting up a simple trust. When they died, the gift would then pass to the charity.

Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to The UK Stem Cell Foundation. 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 The UK Stem Cell Foundation 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 The UK Stem Cell Foundation 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 The UK Stem Cell Foundation directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
