Privacy notice: The details you enter by donating to PayPal will be shared with us and will be retained in the files of the Max Perutz Fund for a period of six years plus the current year and will not be shared with any other organisation.
Tax efficient giving
For tax-free donations, UK Taxpayers can gift aid their donation by completing the Max Perutz Fund Gift Aid Declaration Form.
Please return the form to the LMB at the address above.
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 Max Perutz Fund’ and if asked where the gift should be designated for put ‘Donation to go to the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology Max Perutz Fund, Cambridge’.
By remembering the Max Perutz Fund in your will, you will be supporting education and research in molecular biology and allied biomedical fields directly. For example, it will help us to carry on supporting outstanding scientists at the start of their careers. Other key activities that promote scientific exchange and progress such as keynote lectures and small and focussed grants that have immediate impact would also 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. A legacy gift to the Max Perutz Fund is free of inheritance tax and may help you to reduce the overall tax liability on your estate.
There is no need to rewrite your will: a legacy gift may be included either when it is first drawn up, or subsequently by simply adding a codicil, which is a separate legal document amending your will. We recommend taking professional legal advice.
If you would like to tell us about your legacy plans then please contact the Company Secretary, Josie Gowler (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01223 267014).
