Thinking about and planning for your death isn’t easy. And having a conversation with your loved ones about your wishes can be difficult.

But for all of us a good death is as important as a good life. Your legacy should be a celebration of you, your life and what’s important to you.

Which is where legacy giving comes in. In other words, naming a charity in your will.

Like us, you’ll want to make sure that your loved ones are taken care of after you’re gone. But if you have a little something left over to give, please pledge a donation to LCTF in your will.

It can be a sensitive subject – but just as we ask for other donations and fundraising, we also ask that you consider leaving The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation something in your will.

A legacy donation can make a huge difference. A pledge in your will can be an opportunity to give a little bit more than a standard run-of-the-mill donation. And that donation is vitally important for us to continue doing the work we do – not only supporting people who have vasculitis now, but also funding research to give hope to those with vasculitis in the future.

Finding a cure for vasculitis could be part of your legacy.

What to do

  • Amend your will to include a donation to The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation.
  • You might find it useful to speak to a financial or legal advisor, like a solicitor.
  • If you don’t already have a will, it’s a good thing to sort out – regardless of whether you’re planning to leave a donation or not. And although you can write your will yourself, it’s better to use a solicitor – that way you can be confident that everything will be legally sound.
  • See the Citizen’s Advice website for more about wills.
  • At some times in the year some solicitors will offer free or discounted wills in return for a donation to charity. To find out more about this, see Will Aid or Will Relief Scotland.
  • Alternatively, get in touch with us and we’ll help you.
