Keeping in touch
Please tell us you have included the MS Society as a beneficiary in your Will. This will help us to plan for the future knowing we have the necessary resources, and we would much prefer to thank you rather than your executor.
Where do the funds go?
The MS Society is a not-forprofit organisation. The funds are directed to research projects for a cure to the disease, and the vital specific client support services including:
Why do I need a Will?
A valid Will ensures your assets will be left to the people you love and care for, together with those you wish to help, such as people living with MS.
How do I make a Will?
It is best to seek professional advice from a solicitor to ensure you have made a valid Will. The cost is surprisingly modest and the MS Society can assist by providing a list of solicitors whose speciality is Wills and Estates. A list of trustee companies can also be provided on request.
Help us in other ways
MS Society Life Will
An alternative for consideration is a MS Society Life Will. Simply put, instead of a ‘conventional’ Bequest to the MS Society in your Will, your planned Bequest is used to partner a specific project which will benefit people living with the effects of multiple sclerosis during your lifetime.
Depending on your partnership in the specific project itself, this ‘investment partnership’ may need to be confirmed in your Will.
MS Society Capital Endowment Foundation
You might also consider using a MS Society Capital Endowment Foundation to deposit capital. Professionally managed, it is a means for the MS Society to only use the income derived from the capital you deposit. This income will be used to best assist people living with multiple sclerosis at the discretion of the MS Society Board members.
It is also possible to directly nominate a MS Society Capital Endowment Foundation as a beneficiary of your Estate.
