Leave a Legacy

Legacy gifts are incredibly important to Safer Medicines Trust, as an independent charity which receives no funding from corporations or government. By leaving a gift to Safer Medicines Trust, supporters can continue to help us work towards a future where medical research is fully focused on humans, not animals.

Pass on something wonderful

A legacy is a great way to keep your memory alive and continue to help the causes you care about live on.

A gift to Safer Medicines Trust in your Will will enable us to continue our work to transform medical research from a largely animal-based to a human-based science.

We are so grateful to all of the wonderful people who have already left legacies to Safer Medicines Trust – it is no exaggeration to say that we simply would not exist without them. We remember them constantly and strive to fulfil their wishes, which drive all of our work.

Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy in your Will is not complicated but we would always recommend using a legal professional to ensure your Will is up-to-date and valid.

When making your Will, it is important that you include the full name of your chosen charity and its charity number to ensure your gift goes to the right place.

As Safer Medicines Trust is a registered charity, leaving a legacy to us is completely tax free, ensuring your whole gift will directly support our work.
