You can make a lasting difference to the lives of people with macular disease with a gift in your Will. You'll help us give advice and reassurance when it's needed most and fund groundbreaking research to find a cure. What better legacy to leave for future generations?
The difference you can make
By 2050 the number of people living with late stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is expected to reach 1.3 million people in the UK.
Exciting developments in research make scientists confident that we will one day be able to do much more to prevent, treat and cure macular disease. Until that time, people struggling to cope with sight loss will need our reassurance and advice.
Gifts in Wills help us to provide valuable support through services such as our helpline, counselling and groups. With gifts in Wills we fund research into stem cell treatment, genetics and cell biology at world-class research institutes.
"The Society's long-term commitment to cutting-edge research is vital, helping us improve our understanding of macular degeneration and moving us ever closer to a cure. Without their funding, important grass-roots research simply wouldn't happen" Professor Paul Bishop, Manchester University.
Information for legal professionals and executors is available here.
Legacies of all sizes play an important role. If you plan to remember us in your Will, thank you. We understand that family and friends come first but if the time is ever right to include the Macular Society in your Will, we would be very grateful.
