Leaving a legacy will help to support the future of St George's, Queen Mary's and our local community hospitals.
It's thanks to generous supporters of the past that we are able to continue our work supporting St George's today.
We receive gifts left in wills of all sorts of sizes and from all sorts of people. They are the one of the best ways to ensure that our charity can continue to support the needs of our hospitals well into the future, enabling us to plan for and provide support where it is needed most.
We are so grateful to those people who have left legacies to the Hospital in the past - recently legacy funds have funded vital research and life saving equipment.
Having a Will not only ensures that your family, friends and loved ones will be taken care of, but it also provides an opportunity to make a difference to future generations by remembering the causes that are closest to your heart. Hospital environments and needs can change over time, so please consider leaving a gift with as broad a purpose as possible so that we can ensure it has the most impact.
If you don’t already have a will, it’s a lot more straightforward and affordable than you might think. You can write your will yourself, or you can find a solicitor or will writer in your area online. By having your will professionally written, you ensure everything is covered and arranged as you would like.
If you already have a will and would like to consider changing it to incorporate a gift to St George’s Hospital Charity, you can consider adding a codicil.
Write a codicil
If you do not want to write a new will then you can use a codicil. This is a document used to make changes to a will which has already been made. It is best to speak to a will-writing advisor if considering incorporating a codicil into your will.
If you would like to speak to someone about leaving a gift in your will to St George’s Hospital Charity then please do get in touch via email or call us on 020 8725 4522.
