Leave a gift in your Will

Our work is entirely funded by donations from our generous supporters - we are hugely grateful to those that choose to remember us in their will

A message from Clive Holland, our trustee

In this short video, our trustee Clive Holland discusses his reasons for leaving a legacy in his will to the Brain & Spine Foundation and the dramatic incident that led to him co-founding our charity. Our charity is providing understanding and comfort for people at a time when they most need it – will you consider leaving a gift in your will to help us continue this work?

Thank you for considering leaving a legacy to the Brain & Spine Foundation

Whether you choose to leave a share of your estate or a sum of money, it will make a big difference to the lives of those affected by neurological (brain and spine) problems.

Legacies left to the Brain & Spine Foundation help us to run our services, for example by:

  • Covering the cost of our helpline run by neuroscience nurses.
  • Enabling us to develop reliable, accessible information booklets and factsheets.
  • Allowing us to create accessible information online.

To leave a legacy to the Brain & Spine Foundation, you need to have a valid Will, properly drawn up and witnessed. There are many benefits to having a Will - it puts you in control of your estate; it can help save inheritance tax and it enables you to make an impact on the lives of others.
