Your gift will help us to support future biologists and continue to inspire new generations.
The RSB is continually looking to increase its reach throughout the UK and overseas. By directly supporting our members and the wider public, we can ensure the future is bright for the biosciences and biologists.
From grant schemes and annual competitions, to professional training and school resources, the RSB is inspiring and supporting biologists at all levels. See more about how your gift can help. You can also download our Leave a Legacy to Biology booklet.
Find a solicitor
Making a Will is one of the most important decisions you make. It is more affordable and straightforward than many people realise.
We recommend speaking to your local professional advisor if you're considering making or amending your Will. You can visit the Remember A Charity website to find a solicitor in your area, who will be able to advise you on leaving gifts to charities when making a Will.
The RSB has partnered with Remember A Charity – a group of over 140 charities set up to raise awareness of the importance of having a Will and leaving gifts to charities.
Type of gift
No matter how big or small, leaving a gift in your Will to the Royal Society of Biology will make a difference.
Unrestricted gift: a gift in your Will which is unrestricted is always the most helpful, as it allows us to use your gift where there is greatest need at that time.
Restricted gift: if you are particularly passionate about a specific area of our work, you could restrict your legacy gift to it. Please contact Karen Patel if you are considering this option to ensure the wording of your will matches our activities, otherwise we may not receive your gift.
Tell us about your gift
If you have decided to leave a gift to the Royal Society of Biology in your Will and would like to let us know about it, you can fill in a quick Legacy Pledge. Doing so will assist the Society in its long-term planning and we would value the opportunity to thank you and keep you up to date with our work. The pledge is not binding and is simply a statement of your present intentions.
If you have any questions, or would like to speak to someone in person, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact our head of membership, Karen Patel via email or on 020 3925 3443.
