Leave a gift in your will
Making a Will and leaving a gift in your Will is easy and is one of the best ways you can help us to support marginalized minority and indigenous communities across the world. Any gift, large or small, is extremely valuable and makes a big difference to us, as well as ensuring that your belief in defending the rights of marginalized 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.
If you are considering leaving a gift to MRG in your Will, you could use 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 with Giulia Di Mattia on firstname.lastname@example.org or on +44 20 7422 4200.
