You are here

We know that your first priority when making a will is to provide for your family and loved ones, but many people find that even after they’ve done this they can still leave something to a cause that they hold dear.

Leaving a gift for Katharine House Hospice in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come.

1 in 10 of our patients is funded by a gift left to us in a will. These come in all shapes and sizes, big and small with gifts ranging from £200 to £20,000, from 1% of an estate to 100%, as well as anything left over after other gifts have been made.

Where your money goes

Our FREE care has developed significantly over the years. From our early days providing a sitting service and opening Day Therapies, to building an In-Patient Unit and most recently, offering an At Home Service.

85p in every £1 that is donated is spent on supporting patients and their families.
