Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift legacy in your Will to the Fragile X Society is one of the kindest, most supportive ways you could help us. 


By leaving a gift in your Will (a legacy), you can be safe in the knowledge that you are still making your mark on the world, by providing for a cause that is close to your heart. Free of inheritance tax, a donation made in your Will can also help reduce the tax burden on your estate. 


How Does it Work?

A charitable legacy could be a gift of money or of any other assets that you leave behind. While there are a number of options to consider, there are two main types of charitable legacies:

  • Pecuniary legacy – allows you to specify a sum of money or item of value to be donated.

  • Residuary legacy – allows you to donate a percentage of the net value of your estate or the remaining sum after you have provided for family and friends. 


By leaving a gift in your Will, you can be sure that you are helping us to plan for the future and continue our vital work. Could there be a better reason to make a gift in your Will? 

What Do You Need to Do?

To leave a legacy to the Fragile X Society, you simply need to include details of the donation in your Will. This can be done by writing a Will, by making an amendment or ‘codicil’ to an existing Will or by setting up a Trust. Your solicitor or professional adviser will be able to tell you more.

In Memory of a Loved One

A Tribute Fund can be a wonderful way to honour the memory of a loved one. Whether it is a preferred gift in lieu of flowers at a funeral, or a dedicated challenge to train and fundraise to achieve a meaningful goal that you know will have made them proud. 


Tribute Funds are as flexible and personal as you wish to make them. Our on-line fundraising partner is Every Day Hero so please let us know of any intention to raise Tribute Funds online so that we can help you to set up your Tribute fundraising page with ease and confidence.
