For those in North America, you can donate tax-free via Cambridge in America. This is used for donations to the University of Cambridge and also for the LMB.

When sending a donation please mark it explicitly for the LMB by giving your Affiliation as ‘MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology’ and if asked where the gift should be designated for put ‘Donation to go to MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge’


Any gift is gratefully received by the charity and one way to do this is through bequests. This form of giving has played a vital role in the development and growth of many similar charities and core activities such as keynote lectures, awards and grants would be secured into the future through this type of long-term support. It is very simple to include a legacy to the Max Perutz Fund in your Will and gifts can be made as a specified sum of money, a proportion of your residuary estate or one or more specific items of your property. Making a bequest to a charity can be an effective way of reducing your inheritance tax.

If you have already made your Will and would like to include us, you can simply add a codicil making the addition or change. A codicil is a separate legal document amending your Will and can be made with the advice of your solicitor. If you would like to tell us about your legacy plans then please contact the Company Secretary, Josie Gowler ( or 01223 267014).

Many thanks in advance for any donations you are able to give.
