Leave a gift in your Will

After taking care of your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to The Migraine Trust in your Will

The Migraine Trust is completely reliant on the generosity of people like you – to enable us to keep doing what we’re really proud of doing: helping people affected by migraine to live better lives and helping to find a cure for this complex, painful, debilitating and exhausting brain disease.

By leaving a gift in your Will you will be helping The Migraine Trust bring a cure for migraine one step closer.

About gifts in Wills

A gift in your Will could be one of the most important contributions you can make to a cause that you care about. Gifts in Wills currently account for around 50% of The Migraine Trust’s annual income. There are three main types of gifts in Wills that we receive.

  1. Residuary gifts – the total or a share of an estate after all other payments have been made
  2. Pecuniary gifts – a fixed sum of money
  3. Specific gifts – a particular named item left as a gift

Why leave gift in Will

Migraine is a complex, painful, debilitating and exhausting brain disease that affects an estimated 10 million people aged 15-69 in the UK, ruins hundreds of thousands of lives every year, and robs far too many young people of the chance of a great life.

The Migraine Trust is the largest research and support charity for people affected by migraine in the UK. Our role is to fund and promote new research into migraine, provide day-to-day support for people affected, and campaign for change. By leaving a gift in your Will you will be helping The Migraine Trust bring a cure for migraine one step closer.

Gifts in Wills and Tax

Inheritance Tax is a tax on the estate of someone who has died. The standard Inheritance Tax rate is 40% and is only charged on the part of your estate that is above the £325,000 threshold.

Gifts in Wills to charities, like The Migraine Trust, are tax free and can reduce the amount of tax your estate has to pay. If you leave at least 10% of your net estate to charity, your estate may qualify to pay Inheritance Tax at a reduced rate of 36%.
