Leave a legacy and support minority rights
You have the power to make a lasting impact. Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the best ways you can help us to support marginalised minority and indigenous communities across the world. It is really simple to do and only takes a moment.
Any gift is extremely valuable and makes a big difference to us, as well as ensuring that your belief in defending the rights of marginalised people carries on for future generations.
Gifts to charity are also exempt from inheritance tax and could reduce the amount your family would have to pay.
To leave a gift to MRG in your Will, we suggest the following wording: ‘I give the sum of _____ (currency and amount) to Minority Rights Group International, 54 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LT, UK , registered charity number 282305 to be used for its general charitable purposes’.
If you would like any assistance remembering MRG in your Will, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
