How to donate in your will

We are extremely grateful to our supporters who have pledged to donate to the Academy in their Will. This page provides a guide for those who are interested in joining our most esteemed supporters.

You can leave a gift in your will to the Academy by either:

• Including a clause in your existing Will. This is an option when creating or changing your Will. Click here to view suggested wording.

• Completing a Codicil form. This allows you to add a clause to an existing Will at any time and becomes a legal document when signed in the presence of two adult witnesses (not relatives). You can download the Academy’s suggested Codicil form here.

We always recommend consulting a qualified solicitor when drafting or making changes to your Will. Please contact for more information or to discuss your wishes in further detail.

If you choose to leave a donation to the Academy, it is necessary to include our name, our address and our registered charity number in your bequest:

The Academy of Medical Sciences, 41 Portland Place, London W1B 1QH
Charity No. 1070618
Company No. 3520281, Registered in England

We wish to acknowledge every donation pledged in a will. If you let us know your intentions you will help us to plan for the future.
