Leave a gift in your Will

Help us defeat Alzheimer's and dementia once and for all.

By including a gift to Alzheimer’s Research UK in your Will you will be funding world-class research that will help us find the cure for the diseases that cause dementia.


What difference can a gift make?

We are making great progress, but we still have a long way to go. We rely on gifts from the public to help us fund the best possible research. Currently, gifts in Wills fund approximately 1 in 3 of our vital research projects, moving us closer to a world free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.

We appreciate that family and loved ones come first and after they are taken care of, we would be extremely grateful if you would consider a gift to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Supporters who help us in this special way understand that funding long-term research is our best hope of creating a world free from dementia. Every gift, large or small, is used to fund research into causes, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and ultimately, a cure.
