Leaving a gift in your will can change the lives of catastrophically injured players and help ensure the safety of future players for generations to come.

If you are considering leaving a gift in your Will to support catastrophically injured rugby players, thank you for thinking of supporting the Injured Players Foundation.

Such gifts are wonderful and the benefits of your gift will live on for the safety and protection of future generations of rugby players. To leave a gift in your Will see below for the information you need for your solicitor or for the person drafting your Will:

RFU Injured Players Foundation, Rugby House, 200 Whitton Road, Twickenham, TW2 7BA

Registered Charity No. 1122139

That is all your professional advisor needs! It could not be simpler.

Every gift in every Will makes a difference - regardless of size or type:

The most usual gifts are:

  • A sum of money which can be any amount which suits your circumstances
  • A percentage of your "estate" - formally it is called a residuary gift. It can be 1% to 100% - again whatever suits your own circumstances.

If you already have a Will, and would like to change it, you can use a codicil, but it is also just as easy for your solicitor to adapt an existing Will.

Our promises for gifts in Wills

We fully recognise this is a private gift and that your circumstances might change in future.

To reassure you that we value highly the private nature of this way of supporting our work, we have developed the following promises:

  • We will not put pressure on you to give a gift in your Will - it is your decision.
  • We will never as you the size or type of gift if you decide to support our work this way.
  • We absolutely recognise those closest to you come first in your Will.
  • You never have to tell us your intentions - we respect your right to privacy.
  • We fully understand that personal circumstances change and there might be a time when you must take the charity out of your Will.
  • We promise to use your gift wisely.
  • If you want your gift used in a special way, we will honour your wish. For instance you might want it used to support rugby players who have experienced a catastrophic injury or to fund research into injury prevention and player protection.
  • If you want to tell us about your gift it does enable us to say thank you which we like to do!

It is so easy to do

All you have to do is phone your advisor and it can happen in minutes!
