Leaving a gift in your will to MK Community Foundation is an effective way to continue your charitable giving and create a lasting legacy for yourself and your family. By talking with us about the local issues that matter to you, we can ensure that local charities and the causes you care about are supported for many years to come.
Putting a gift in your will isn’t just for people who have access to lots of funds. Any gift you leave, no matter what the size, will make a difference to your community.
We can help and advise you and your professional advisor about creating a Legacy Fund that will become an enduring tribute and lasting memorial reflecting your personal values and your special interests.
Our supporter Christopher Hopkinson's passion for the arts and music in particular, are remembered each year with the Christopher Hopkinson Memorial Music Bursary. Christopher's wife, Maureen, works closely with our team to invest in talented young musicians to further their training in performance and musical excellence. This last year, Georgina Lee, a very talented local clarinet player, was awarded the Music Bursary; Georgina hopes to use the bursary to purchase an 'A' Clarinet so she can play the orchestral music she aspires to perform.

By speaking with us about your passions and the issues you are concerned about we can work together to create change for local people in Milton Keynes.
Whatever course of action you decide upon, we recommend that at the time of writing your Will, or changing your Will you should instruct your professional adviser to contact us first to discuss establishing a Legacy or Tribute Fund and the naming of the fund. Alternatively, you can contact us to receive information on how to leave a bequest to the Community Foundation or add a codicil to your existing Will.
