Everyone should make a will. It's the prudent thing to do to ensure that your final wishes are carried out. You should, of course, leave as much as you can to your family and friends. However, we would be most grateful if you felt able to leave a small legacy to your local Birmingham Humanists group.

We receive no funding or grants of any kind from any official body. Everything we do is funded through members' subscriptions and donations from supporters.

If you would like to leave a legacy to the Birmingham Humanists as part of your will, mention this to your solicitor. We promise you that every penny we receive is independently audited and it all goes to the humanist cause.

Here is some suggested wording, which you or your solicitor could use or adapt when including the Birmingham Humanists in your will: "I give (insert the amount of your legacy here) to the Birmingham Humanists, for its general purposes, and I declare that the receipt of the Treasurer or other elected officer of the Birmingham Humanists shall be a full and sufficient discharge for my executors."

With the kind permission of her family, you can read about how we have used the legacy given to us by Anne White.

We are, of course, also most grateful for any financial support that people are able to give us during their lifetime. If you would like to make a donation, please click the button on the right or contact us at the address provided.

For over 40 years Birmingham Humanists have stood as the local voice of Humanism in the Midlands. You can help us carry on our important work. Thank you.
