Why leave a gift to Mind in your Will?

Thanks to those who've left us a gift in their Will, we've come a long way. We've been fighting for better health since 1946. But there is still more to do.

Even though 1 in 4 people have mental health problems, most of us don’t get the help we need. This has to change.

Join us in the fight for mental health by leaving a gift to Mind.

Frequently asked questions about online and phone free Wills

Once your instructions have been finalised you will be sent your Will in the post. This will include clear signing and witnessing instructions. Your solicitor can also check and store the will for you free of charge, and send a photocopy back to you. If you have any concerns or questions, you can discuss them with your solicitor.

You must be over 18 years old and live permanently in England or Wales to use the online and telephone offer. If you live in other parts of the UK and are over 18, please register for our face-to-face offer.

While there’s no obligation to leave a gift to Mind in your Will, many people who use our free Will services do. The kind of gift you leave will depend on your individual wishes. Read more about the different types of gift.

Our offer covers a simple Will. More extensive work, for example a trust fund in your Will, may cost extra. Please make your needs clear to your chosen solicitor when arranging your appointment. You can then talk through costs for any extra work. Co-op Legal Services will discuss your options with you.

If you choose to leave a gift to Mind, there are 2 main types of gifts people tend to leave to charities:

  • Pecuniary gift (also called a cash gift). This is a fixed sum of money (for example £100)
  • Residuary gift (also known as a percentage gift). This is a proportion of your remaining estate after all the other gifts have been paid out (for example, 5%)

If you wish to leave a different kind of gift, your solicitor can help you.
