You can support the work of the PMF and its beneficiaries in several ways
- A regular donation by Standing Order to our unrestricted funds. This provides the Trustees with maximum flexibility to dispense within its charitable purposes.
- A single or regular donation to a designated fund (for example, Parkinson’s Research, Roger Harris Fund for Brain Tumour Research, Student Bursaries).
- Making provision in your will for a donation from your estate.
- Running a sponsored charitable event of your own choosing.
Do you feel like arranging some fundraising?
Large charitable events are great – witness the Annual Chris Kallis Gala Nights – but smaller events or sponsored challenges such as losing weight through to running a half marathon are great for individual achievement and if they raise some money to support our healthcare mission, what’s not to like? Profs Sneyd and Taylor recently raised £5k for Brain Tumour research by climbing Ben Nevis the hard way. Denis Willkins raised the same amount cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats and had enormous fun on the way. How about a corporate event similar to the popular Vosper’s Golf Day? Just go to PMF Just Giving and set up a page, announce and you are off. Any advice or problems, please give me a call on 07836755623.
Remember PMF in your Will?
Consider making a donation in your will. If you leave something to charity in your will, then it won’t count towards the total taxable value of your estate. This is called leaving a ‘charitable legacy’. You can also cut the Inheritance Tax rate on the rest of your estate from 40% to 36%, if you leave at least 10% of your ‘net estate’ to a charity.
