Every gift we receive is an investment in the future of our students, patients and the osteopathic profession.
The impact of legacies on our charitable work is enormous, and we are deeply grateful to those who leave a donation to the UCO in their wills.
In life, finding the spare money to donate to good causes can be a difficult. But many people are able to gift a small portion of their estate after death to make a significant difference to those in need.
We recently received a legacy gift from Margaret Walker who left a statement that this gift was “for the training of osteopaths from one who has personally greatly appreciated their treatment over her lifetime.”
Remember a Charity provide lots of useful information about how to leave a gift in your will and important things to consider.

In memory gifts
Giving in memory is a respectful way to celebrate the life of someone special and to recognise something which was important to them. If you would like to make a gift to the UCO in memory of someone there are a number of ways you can do this, including:
- Making an individual donation.
- Setting up an online tribute page for friends and family to donate and leave personalised tributes.
- Requesting donations in lieu of flowers or collecting funeral donations. We can provide funeral collection envelopes to help you collect these.
- Undertaking an event or challenge in their honour.
If you have any other ideas for in memory gifts that you would like to discuss with us please call our fundraising department on 020 7089 5336.
