Hope for the Future
Providing for your family and friends is the most important consideration when making your will, however we would also ask you to think about leaving a gift to MND Scotland.
Gifts in wills (legacies) have played a vital part in funding MND Scotland’s work for the last 30 years. We have achieved much in that time, but we know that there will be much more to do in the future.
If we are to continue providing the best quality of care and support to people affected by MND, we need your help. Legacy gifts can help us to make a real difference to the lives of people living in Scotland with MND, now and in the future. No matter how small, leaving a gift to MND Scotland in your will really makes a difference.
Leaving a legacy to the MND Scotland in a new or existing will, is straightforward to do and is exempt from inheritance tax. If you have already remembered the MND Scotland in your will please let us know.
When making a will you should consult a solicitor. If you don’t currently have a solicitor, the Law Society of Scotland can help you find one.
Please remember that the full name of the charity – MND Scotland – must appear if you wish your gift to be used to help people living with MND in Scotland. The Motor Neurone Disease Association is a separate charity covering England, Wales and Northern Ireland only. It is particularly important if you live outside Scotland to see that your solicitor includes MND Scotland’s full name in your will. It is also useful to add our address.
