Text WISH to 70111 to donate £3 a month

Give a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will, also known as a legacy donation, whether big or small, will help us to keep granting wishes to children with critical illnesses, and will also continue providing families with happy memories at a time when they may otherwise be in short supply.

There are a few ways that you can leave a gift to Make-A-Wish, and we recommend that you take care of your family and friends before you think about leaving a donation. Your solicitor will be able to give you legal advice on the type that suits you best, here are some options:

  • A percentage of your estate – this is known as a residuary legacy
  • A set amount – this is known as a pecuniary legacy
  • An item, such as jewellery or property – this is known as a specific legacy

If you do decide to include us in your will, you will need our Charity Registration Numbers (England and Wales) 295672 (Scotland) SC037479; and our address:

Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, Seventh Floor, Thames Tower, Station Road, Reading, RG1 1LX.

Though, it's up to you whether you want to let us know.

If you would like to notify us of your intention to leave us a gift, or would like any more information, please contact fundraising on 0118 304 2775 or email [email protected]
