By leaving a legacy in your will to RSPH, you could support our work and demonstrate your commitment and passion for improving the public's health and wellbeing.
Your gift would also enable us to better support our members and the future of the organisation for years to come.
Supporting our work
We value the commitment of all our members and supporters, and recognise that there may be specific areas of our work that you may wish to support.
Your gift could be used to fund initiatives that reflect your personal interests, making a valuable contribition to them.
Some examples of the different legacies you could leave behind include:
- Funding research to support our policy and campaign work
- Developing a campaign focusing on a specific public health issue
- Sponsoring a bursary programme for the Young Health Champions programme in your area
- Supporting our work with local communities
As well as leaving a legacy behind and helping to support the future of public health, there are also good financial reasons for leaving a gift to charity. RSPH is a registered charity which means that your gift will be exempt from tax - this may also reduce the rate of inheritance tax that you pay on the rest, depending on the percentage of your estate that you gift to charity when you die.
Making a will
We recommend that you prepare your will in consultation with a solicitor or other professional advisor such as an accountant who is qualified to make wills. They can explain the benefits in full and how they could apply to your specific circumstances. If you want to go ahead, you can either choose to create a will or add specific wording to one that already exists.
You will need the following details:
- The Royal Society for Public Health, 59 Mansell Street, London E1 8AN
- Registered charity number: 1125949 (England and Wales)
