MSA Trust

Leave a Gift in your Will

Gifts from Wills are an essential part of our income and we simply couldn’t carry on doing our work without them. By remembering the Trust in your Will, we will be able to help more people affected by MSA, while also increasing our research commitment to find both a cause and cure for this devastating disease.

After providing for family and friends, remembering the Trust in your Will is a wonderful way of supporting our work and your gift is exempt from Inheritance Tax.

If you are considering leaving a gift in Will, please ensure you get expert advice. If you require help to word the Will correctly please consider contacting a local solicitor or any of the organisations below:

The Which? guide to creating your Will

Remember to:

  • Include our full name – ‘Multiple System Atrophy Trust’ and charity number (1137652) – to ensure your donation reaches us.
  • Review and amend your Will to ensure it remains relevant if your circumstances change, for example, if you marry, divorce, or if children or grandchildren are born.

We have a few handy guides to help you decide what type of gift you wish to leave and to help with the wording. Please see the types of gifts in Wills and a guide for Will draftsmen below.

We are so grateful if you have remembered the Trust in your Will. This makes a big difference to our work, support and information for the MSA community, thank you so much! If would like to let us know that you have left a gift for us, please contact Karen Walker on 0333 323 4591.

“The MSA Trust supported Sue and myself throughout our journey with MSA. I chose to leave a gift in my Will to remember Sue and ensure that the Trust can continue to support other people affected by this cruel illness; improve our understanding of MSA and its causes; and, ultimately find a cure so others don’t have to suffer.”

John Gibbs, who has chosen to leave a gift to the Trust in his Will.
