Did you know every day a child is born who will develop mitochondrial disease by the age of 16?
There is, currently no cure for this disease which is for many, debilitating and life limiting.But, with your help we can change this. Gifts left to The Lily Foundation in Wills help us continue our fight against mitochondrial disease and our mission to find a cure through our research programme.
Together we will ensure that more children can live longer, happier lives.
How do I leave a gift in my Will?
We understand that family and friends come first, so once you have taken care of your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to The Lily Foundation. Leaving a gift in your Will is easier than you might think and there are a number of different ways you can give.
- Residuary Legacy– A share of your estate
You can donate a share of your estate to The Lily Foundation. This type of gift is also inflation proof and will save you having to update your Will in the future.
- Pecuniary Legacy– A specific sum of money
If you have already a financial figure in mind of what you like to leave to The Lily Foundation you can simple write this into you Will.
- A specific item– something of value
Any item that you own and you feel would be of financial value to The Lily Foundation. This can be anything from jewellery to a house.
Already have a Will?
If you already have written your Will you can easily add a donation to The Lily Foundation using a codicil form.
A codicil form allows you to make amendments to your original Will without you having to make a new one. We advise that you consult with your solicitor before adding a codicil form to your Will.
