Leaving a gift to Beatson Cancer Charity in your Will is a valuable and meaningful way to ensure that future generations will benefit from the very best cancer care and treatment possible.

As more people are diagnosed with cancer in the west of Scotland, demand on The Beatson will only grow. We must ensure we can continue to fund more clinical nurse specialists, state-of-the-art equipment and relaxing therapies, we simply won’t be able to provide the world-class care that so many cancer patients and their families depend on.

Types of gifts you can give:

1: Residuary Gift – after you have provided for your friends and family you can choose to leave a share, or the remainder of your estate to us. This gift is a very popular way for people to remember a charity that’s close to their heart. 

2: Pecuniary Gift – you may decide to leave an exact sum of money. However, inflation can devalue this gift over time.

3: Specific Gift – you can leave a gift of property, land, shares, jewellery or other valuables.

4: Gift  in Trust – you can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time and when that time ends, it can be passed to us.

follow this simple guide to find out exactly how to include gifts in your will.

  • Make a list of all your assets. This could include land, a property, investments or valuables.

  • Decide who you would like to benefit. Caring for your family and friends will be first and foremost in your mind, but many people also decide to support a charity or cause close to their heart.

  • Decide which type of legacy gift you would like to leave.

  • Choose your executors and meet your solicitor to discuss your Will.

  • Keep your Will safe by leaving a copy with your solicitor or in a safe place at home and remember to tell somebody where it is.
