After remembering your loved ones, you can be certain that making a promise to protect future generations from the pain and devastation of stroke will make a huge difference. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the generosity of those who leave our charity a gift in their Will.

If you'd like to learn more, please contact our legacy giving team, who will be happy to answer all your questions. You can also download our free guide to leaving a gift in your Will.

At the Stroke Association, we’re determined to address the injustice around stroke. Our vision is a world where everyone has a fighting chance of surviving stroke and gets the support they need, for as long as they need it, to rebuild their lives.

If you want that world too – you can promise it to future generations, with a gift in your Will.

If you are looking for help with writing your Will, we offer a Free Will Scheme for people aged 60 and over, and for stroke survivors of any age.

Watch our short video to hear Miriam Margolyes talk about her own stroke story and how legacy gifts can help us reach even more stroke survivors.

As a stroke scientist, I believe gifts in Wills are our best chance to support research. I promise to do all I can for stroke survivors during my lifetime. But you could help this work continue far longer. All it takes is a promise.
Dr Anna Kuppuswamy

There are three main types of legacy gift

  • Residuary - this could be a share (such as 25%) or the whole of, your estate after all other gifts, payments and debts have been made. A residuary gift will hold its value and not be affected by inflation. 
  • Pecuniary - this is a specific sum of money, such as £5,000.
  • Specific - a gift of your choice, like a house, or shares.

Already left a gift?

If you've already included a gift to us in your Will, we'd love the chance to say 'thank you' personally.

Letting us know about your gift helps us to plan ahead with confidence. If you'd like to inform us about your plans, contact Sam Burry in the legacy giving team.

Your Will is personal to you, and very private. That's why anything you tell us is treated with the utmost confidence.

Legacy events

We hold a number of legacy events across the UK each year, where guests can learn how to make a promise to leave our charity a legacy that can make a difference to the future of stroke survivors. Find out more about our upcoming events and how you can get involved.
