Legacy gifts are incredibly important to FRAME, as an independent charity which receives no funding from central and local government. By leaving a gift to FRAME, supporters can continue to help us work towards a time when animals are no longer needed in medical research, even after they’re gone.
This year Remember a Charity Week runs from 9th to the 15th September and is an opportunity for charities to raise awareness about the importance of gifts in Wills.
A legacy is a great way to keep your memory alive and continue to support causes that are important to you, even when you are no longer around.
Those who kindly and generously pledge to leave a gift to FRAME in their Will enable us to continue our work to develop new, scientifically valid, human-based methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education, and testing.
As well as funding FRAME’s pioneering research, the donations and legacies we receive also help us to educate the general public, educate and train scientists and future scientists, provide grants and scholarships, offer scientific knowledge, expertise and guidance, collaborate with industry and academia, and promote the 3Rs worldwide.
Leaving a legacy
Leaving a legacy in your Will is relatively straight-forward. However, we would always recommend using a legal professional to ensure your Will is up-to-date and valid.
When making your Will, it is important that you include the full name of your chosen charity and its charity number to ensure your gift goes to the right place.
As FRAME is a registered charity, leaving a legacy to us is completely tax free, ensuring your gift goes towards directly support our work.
