How To Leave A Legacy

What is your definition of a legacy? The common myth that only the rich and famous leave money to charity when they die, couldn't be further from the truth. The reality is that without gifts left in wills by people like you, many charities like The Neuro Foundation wouldn't even exist.

What is your definition of a legacy?

 Legacies are passed down from those who came before us, and the legacies we pass down are for those who come after us.   

During "Remember A Charity" Week we want to urge and encourage adults to consider The Neuro Foundation when recording their final wishes. Leaving a gift enables the charity to continue its work in providing support to people with Neurofibromatosis (NF).

Many of you reading this may not have written a will or considered the "what if...." but now is the time to prepare for the future, leaving a gift, big or small, is an opportunity to support the Neuro Foundation in its cause to create an impact on the lives of those affected by NF.  

The Neuro Foundation is a community of children, teenagers, adults, siblings, parents, carers, nurses, and doctors. We are more than a charity, we are a family unit, and leaving a gift is more than just providing a donation, it is a contribution to extending the crucial support provided by The Neuro Foundation. 

Charitable legacies are an important source of income that enables The Neuro Foundation to continue our work. Leaving some money in your will for The Neuro Foundation can make a huge difference and will enable us to sustain the important patient support and advisory services that we provide.

So, you don’t have to be rich and famous to make a contribution that can make a difference. We can all do something amazing, just by remembering our favorite charity when writing our will. We hope that you will remember The Neuro Foundation.

If you would like to leave us a legacy, please ask your executors to contact us by telephoning 020 8439 1234 or emailing us at  and if you need more information on leaving a gift to a charity please go to
