Millicent Fawcett's legacy was the vote for women. What will yours be?

We are committed to campaigning until all girls and women are truly free to fulfil their potential. But we need your help to keep going.

If you'd like to turn your support into a legacy for future generations, a gift in your Will would help us continue producing independent research and campaigning to defend women’s rights. Making or amending a Will raises many important questions. We understand you will want to think about these in your own time, and with your family and loved ones in mind.

If you would like to know more or have any questions about remembering us in your Will, we’re here to help.

Simply fill out this quick form with your details, and a member of our support team will get in touch with you at your convenience. 

Why support us?

With an unrivalled weight of history behind it, tracing its roots back to Millicent Fawcett’s successful parliamentary campaign to win women the vote, Fawcett today continues to deliver a nonpartisan and independent voice on women’s rights. See our achievements in recent years here.

In 2018, we are a tipping point for gender equality. The Fawcett Society is focused on achieving progress for all women, today and tomorrow, but we need your support to keep defending our rights.

Many people think that only very wealthy people leave money to charities in their will, but that isn’t the case. No matter who you are and how much you are able to give, you can make a difference to our work.

How does it work?

To make the process as straightforward as possible for our supporters, we have signed up to The National Free Wills Network. They will find a solicitor in your area to write your simple Will completely free of charge. This is a limited offer which will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. You are not obliged to leave a gift to The Fawcett Society, but we sincerely hope that you will be able to leave a bequest and support the important work that we do.

After applying, you will get a letter from The National Free Wills Network with a list of participating solicitors in your area and a voucher that is valid for 90 days, so you have up to three months to make an appointment with your preferred solicitor. Then they will help you draw up your Will free of charge (if you require more than a Simple Will, you may opt to pay for additional work on the Will as required).

Once you have drawn up your Will, your chosen solicitor will simply contact us to confirm that your voucher has been used.
