Making a gift in your will

After you have met the needs of your family, you can leave a gift to Scottish Autism in your will so we can continue to help people with autism in the future. We use these gifts in many ways to enhance and extend the opportunities we offer to individuals and families living with autism.

Give a gift in your will

Scottish Autism funds many additional activities and facilities through income received.

If we did not receive such generous support from those who support our work these activities simply would not be available.

How your gift will help

Here are just some of the activities we have been able to provide due to the generosity of others:

£25,685     Our Advice Line, annual costs

£45,000     Right Click (our online support programme), annual costs

  £3,000     Social Groups

£10,000     Sensory room

£10,000     Outdoor Gym

  £4,000     Music therapy sessions

  £4,000     Technology (for individuals we support)

  £2,530     Healthy eating/gaining cooking skills

In the last ten years Scottish Autism has received over £600,000 from generous gifts left in wills. This has allowed us to both plan for the future and provide everyday services for individuals we support.

Our Advice Line, listed above, receives no government funding. Scottish Autism meets the cost of this service to ensure it is available when needed most by individuals looking for guidance and support.

Scottish Autism is extremely sympathetic regarding how your gift will be used. If you would like your gift used for a specific purpose or in a certain area please let us know and where possible we will ensure your wishes are carried out.

Remembering a loved one

Heirs can make a gift to charity in the name of a loved one up to two years following their passing.

If you would like to inform us of your intention to leave a gift in your will to Scottish Autism, or if you have any questions, please contact us in the strictest confidence.
