Legacy & Gifts in Memory
Gifts in Wills and in memory of a loved one are a vital part of our income and go a long way to help RICE carry out our long term research strategy. If you’ve supported a charity during your life what do you want to happen after you’ve gone?
We’re not asking you to write or update your Will right now, we’re simply asking for you to give a thought to RICE and when the time is right we hope you’ll remember us in your Will and help our work carry on. As RICE is a registered charity, leaving a legacy is also tax free and will reduce the inheritance tax burden on your estate.
Any gift, no matter how small, will help us achieve our aim to advance the medical care and quality of life of older people everywhere. It will allow us to focus on researching the best ways of diagnosing and treating Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia and finding ways to help with the challenges of living with dementia, both for the person and their family and carers.
Take the time to think about what you want to happen after you’ve gone – it’s not only about your estate but also your end of life care. Leaving clear wishes will help any loved ones in what will be a very difficult time for them.
