"Simply knowing that I’ve left a legacy gives me that feel-good factor.

You can make a difference even when you are gone.”

- Edith

Leave Mildmay a legacy Gift in your Will

Choosing to leave a Gift to Mildmay in your Will is a great way to support us

It costs you nothing now, but ensures that you can make a life-changing difference in the future.

Gifts in Wills are vital to help us secure our future and ensure that we can provide first-class services and facilities in our UK hospital.

Your Gift can also contribute to our work in East Africa supporting thousands of children, young people, women and men with HIV clinical services and education.

Did you know?

Income from legacies is one of the most important sources of funding for charities, yet over two thirds of people in the UK die without even making a Will?

Making a Will is the best way to communicate your wishes about what happens to your things, so they can make a difference to the people you care for

It is easy to make a Will, although we would always recommend using a solicitor.

When considering Mildmay, decide on the type of legacy gift you want to leave:

Pecuniary gift

Allows you to leave a specific specific amount of money, decided by you, to Mildmay.

Residuary gift

Allows you to leave Mildmay a share of your estate once family and friends have been taken care of. This is the most flexible – you don’t have to decide on an exact amount, and it keeps pace with inflation. Specific legacy: named items such as your house or antiques etc.

Reversionary gift

Allows you to leave your estate to your dependants while they are living, but after they pass away it will revert to Mildmay

Can I specify how my gift should be used?

If you want your gift to be used in a certain way – for a particular project – you can include this in your Will.

However, please phrase this as a request, not a condition. If the conditions are stated too specifically, then sadly we may not be able to use your gift, for example, if the project you have specified is no longer operating.

It's most useful to Mildmay if the gift is unrestricted, so that we can use the money where we believe the need is greatest.

Last year, Mildmay received over £75,000 in legacy Gifts

Examples of how this supported our work:

A legacy gift of £1,100 to Day Therapy Services allowed us to fund over 50 horticultural therapy sessions.

Getting out in the fresh air and tending and growing in a garden lifts the spirits, supports cognition, goal-setting, and helps to build strength and promote wellbeing.

A legacy gift of £600 meant we could buy a portable electric piano with weighted keys for our music therapy.

The benefits of music therapy are widely known and include: encouraging self-expression, combating depression, and improving speech and memory function. Using musical instruments helps to improve movement, special awareness and flexibility.

A legacy gift of £1,500 helped Mildmay to train community health workers in Kenya.

It costs approximately £49 per day to train a community health worker (CHW) in Kenya and each CHW covers up to 144 households. On average that equals 720 people reached by one person.

The support given to communities is enormous and is particularly important for those in remote, hard to reach areas. The work covers support with antenatal care, cervical screening, HIV education and prevention, supports for children, orphans or vulnerable and high risk groups.

Tribute Fund

When you make a gift in memory of a loved one, you commemorate their life whilst helping all of the patients treated at our hospital.

Setting up a tribute fund online creates a place to remember your loved one. It’s the perfect way to celebrate their life.

Family and friends can show their support in any way they like – with donations, by organising fundraising activities or by taking on a challenge.

Mildmay is registered with JustGiving and, coming soon, you can link to a particular project you wish to raise funds for.

Our Registered Charity number is 292058
