Why leave the Society for Endocrinology a legacy?
Your legacy could help us enable endocrinology’s potential to advance science and health.
About half our annual income is used to directly support the work of our members through grants to further research and enable collaboration. Further funds are distributed as awards and prizes to recognise excellence and nurture emerging talent.
Your donation, however large or small, could help us fund more research, improve clinical practice and support more endocrinologists and endocrine nurses to secure the future of our discipline. You can discuss with us how you would like your gift to be spent.
If you already have a will
You can make a legacy gift to the Society for Endocrinology by making a simple addition to your Will (called a Codicil). This should be straightforward and inexpensive to arrange through your solicitor. In order that the Trustees have clarity on your bequest and to avoid any confusion, we would ask you please, if possible, to contact us by post, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone 01454 642203 to discuss the wording of your Codicil before it is finalised with your solicitor.
If you don't yet have a will
Making a Will is not difficult. It ensures you protect those dearest to you and support causes closest to you, in the way you would wish. We recommend that you seek independent advice from a practising solicitor, legal advisor or bank trust company to make a Will. If you are making a new Will which includes a legacy to the Society for Endocrinology, so that the Trustees have clarity on your bequest and to avoid any confusion, we would ask you please, if possible, to contact us by post, email or phone to discuss the wording of your bequest before it is finalised with your solicitor. Contact details are shown above.
