Leave A Lasting Legacy

Thank you for considering including a gift in your will - a lasting legacy.

Some of our supporters have generously included a gift in their will to The Somerville Foundation, once they have made adequate provision for family and friends, and it is because of them that we are able to continue raising standards of care and investing in research to find effective treatments for congenital heart disease.


Gifts in wills are many different sizes

You don't have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your will. Small or large, it doesn't matter, every gift will make a difference.

It is an excellent way to help your favourite charity to carry on with its work. Your gift will help secure our future ability to provide information and support to the thousands of people born with a heart condition.

You already have a will

If you have already made a will, but now wish to include a gift to The Somerville Foundation, you may be able to add a codicil to your existing will. We do strongly advise consulting with your solicitor before adding a codicil.
