Why leave a gift to the BHF in your Will

Half our funding comes from gifts in Wills. They have the power to discover new preventions, treatments and cures, save people's lives and keep families together. We call this Will Power.

Gifts in wills help us tackle the world's biggest killers

There are an estimated 7 million people living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and children.

Gifts in Wills play a vital part in continuing our research into heart and circulatory diseases and how they're connected. As well as research, we work with decision makers, such as parliamentarians and health system leaders, to ensure the best for patients with heart and circulatory conditions across the UK.

We make it personal

Many staff at the BHF have been directly affected by heart and circulatory diseases. This is why we want as many people as possible to join us to beat heartbreak for everyone, forever.

A gift in your Will has the power to keep your support going. Whatever the size of the gift you leave, it can go so far in helping beat heartbreak forever.

"I know that BHF will spend the money wisely and fund more pioneering treatments and research related to all aspects of improving heart patients’ lives. When I consider what was available in 1968 for my father and compare it to my own experience, I realise the huge impact of research and pioneering treatments. So many current heart patients, like myself, are only alive today because of BHF-funded research.
