Today, more than 55 million people around the world are living with dementia. A new person develops dementia every three seconds and unless a cure is found, one in three people born today will die with dementia.
It is anticipated that by 2030 the global societal cost of caring for people living with dementia will exceed US$2.8 trillion.
At Race Against Dementia, we fund and guide pioneering scientists from across the world. We work to achieve better diagnoses, understand risks, develop treatments, and find a cure for dementia.
By leaving a gift in your will, you will help us accelerate progress and help us beat dementia – faster.
If you would like more information on the work your gift could support, please get in touch.
You can either write a Will yourself, or use a legal professional. Your Will is your opportunity to declare what should happen to your money, property and possessions, but also enables you to specify any charitable donations.
If you are considering leaving Race Against Dementia a gift in your Will, thank you, we are very grateful.
It is worth spending some time thinking about the form and value of your gift.
If you are a UK citizen, as well as the gift itself being tax-free, charitable gifts can also reduce the amount of inheritance tax that the rest of your estate will pay. We advise that you speak to a legal professional to understand more about the savings that can be made when leaving a gift in your Will to Race Against Dementia.
When leaving a gift in your will to Race Against Dementia, you can choose whether you would like to donate a fixed amount, whatever sum of money remains once the other gifts have been distributed, or a specific item.

We advise that you speak to a legal professional to check you’ve got the right wording in your Will. It is important to include the following information:
