Will You Be Leaving Behind a Lasting Legacy?

Leave a lasting legacy that will provide specialist care and support to children, young adults, adults and their families who are facing a life- limiting illness.

A gift in your Will is a donation made as part of your overall financial or estate planning after your passing. At Dougie Mac we understand that taking care of your loved ones comes first and once your family are taken care of, we welcome gifts of all sizes.

It’s a wonderful and generous way to leave your mark on the world and to be able to say, “I was here and I helped to make a difference”. It’s also another special way to remember a loved one.

Improve tomorrow with your promise today.

How Your Gift Will Help

Gifts in Wills are vital to the work we do.

Last year Dougie Mac received over £2.5 million from the people who kindly remember us in their Will. Every gift, no matter how big or small, makes a real difference for future generations.

• Over 3,000 local families benefit from our care and support services every year which includes children, young adults and adults.
• We support all illnesses that are no longer curable, not just cancer.
• A lot of the work we do is in the community visiting our families within the comfort of their own home.
• We offer a 24 hour advice line for patients and families.

Writing and Updating Your Will

During 2022 we are holding our annual ‘Make a Will Months’ throughout May and October.
During these month’s local solicitors kindly donate their time and waive their normal fee in exchange for a donation to Dougie Mac. We hope you also will consider leaving a legacy in your Will too.

This year, you can also write or update your Will online with specialist solicitors – Kwil 

Some local solicitors also offer a special Dougie Mac discount all year round if you would like to complete your Will outside of May & October.

How to write or update your Will

Your Will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. If you die without a Will, the law decides who gets what. This is referred to as intestate.

Your Will should set out:

  • Who you want to benefit from your Will;
  • Who should look after any children under 18 yrs;
  • Who is going to sort out your estate and carry out your wishes after your death (your executor);
  • What happens if the people you want to benefit die before you.
