Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

Gifts and donations are vital in helping us to fund our work. Gifts left in wills, or legacies, allow us to continue our pioneering research and help to find better alternatives to animals in laboratory research.

What is a legacy?

A legacy is a gift in your will that is given to your selected charity.

As FRAME is a registered charity, leaving a legacy to us is completely tax free, ensuring your gift goes towards directly support our work.

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.

Even a small gift left in a will after you have looked after friends and family can make a difference to our work.

How do I leave a legacy in my will?

If you leave a gift to FRAME in your will, the value of your gift will be deducted from your estate before Inheritance Tax is applied, so it could reduce the amount of tax paid.

We recommend speaking to a legal professional about the type of gift you would like to leave in your will and to ensure your will is legal and valid.

There are three main types of gifts that you might consider leaving to FRAME.

A share of your estate

Known as a ‘residuary legacy’ it is a percentage of what remains of your estate after all other gifts and expenses have been paid. One of the advantages of a residuary legacy is that it will always stay in proportion because it is a percentage. So you don’t need to worry about changing your will if you have an amount to leave that differs from what you expected.

A specific sum

This is a gift of a set amount, called a ‘pecuniary legacy’.

A specific item

This could be something valuable such as an antique, painting, property, or shares.

When making your will, it is important that you ensure that that the full name of your chosen charity and their charity number is included to ensure your gift goes to the right place.

If you’d like to leave a gift to FRAME, you will need the following details:
