This week the MS Trust is joining 140 other charities in support of this year’s Remember A Charity Week. Across the country charities will be promoting the importance of leaving a legacy so that their vital work can continue. Research shows that although over a third of the population say they’d happily leave a charitable gift in their Will once family and friends had been provided for, only 7% actually do.
“Like many charities, we receive essential income from supporters who kindly leave us gifts in their Wills,” said Jo Sopala, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at the MS Trust. “In fact, legacies are vital to the survival of our work. We know that many of our supporters want to remember us in their Will, but sometimes just don’t get round to it. Remember A Charity Week gives those people the opportunity to take a moment to consider their legacy and consider charities like us.”
Recently MS Trust supporter Vicky Edwards told us why decided to remember the MS Trust in her will.
