Why leave a gift in your will?
Katie looks after people who have decided to leave us a gift in their will. She explains why legacies are so important to our work.
Wills are vital in the fight against lung disease. By leaving a gift to us in your will, you can make sure that we can continue our vital work to help those living with a lung condition.
Hope for the future
Your gift will help fund research into lung conditions, so there’s hope for the future. Research into lung disease is hugely underfunded compared to similar conditions. That means we have some way to go to end the pain caused by diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), mesothelioma, lung cancer, asthma and many more.
With your help, we can make a real difference, by investing in research so scientists will understand these conditions.
You'll help fund our vital services to help those living with a lung condition today, and make sure people living with a lung condition have a voice.
Leave a legacy
What’s more, wills are a great way to leave a lifeline after your lifetime.Your support could mean that future generations may never have to experience the suffering and anxiety that lung disease can cause. It also means you'll have full control over what happens to your money when you die.
Walter is leaving a gift in his will. His wife suffered from bronchiectasis almost all her life, before sadly passing away. He’s says: "I'm leaving a gift in my will because it's a cause close to my heart. I’ve lost so many people to lung disease and it’s important that things change."
The more people, like Walter, who leave us a gift in their will, the more we can do to give hope, help and a voice to people living with a lung condition.
Any gift is vital
We know that writing a will can be a daunting task, so it’s best if you talk to a solicitor. They can help guide you through the process. And if you have any questions about leaving a gift to us in your will, we can help.
Any gift is vital, whether it’s a fixed amount or a small percentage of your estate. Even 1% would make a difference. Every penny is important in the fight against lung disease.
