Leave a Legacy

 You can help change the lives of thousands of people living with a stoma in the UK by leaving a legacy gift to the Colostomy Association.

Each year, the Colostomy Association provides invaluable support to ostomates and their families as well as campaigning to improve the quality of life for people living with a stoma across the UK.
As a self funding charity your support is vital in helping us to deliver the free services and campaigns that make a difference where it really matters.
When leaving a legacy to the Colostomy Association you can choose whether you are happy for us to use your gift where we feel the need is greatest, or you can request that it is used for a specific area or service.

Our promise to you

  • We understand that leaving a legacy is a special and personal decision. That’s why we make this promise to you today:
  • We understand and agree that your family and friends come first, and promise to treat you and your family with courtesy, sensitivity and respect. We respect that writing a Will is a personal process and we understand that leaving a gift to the Colostomy Association can bring a lot of comfort.
  • We will always be happy to answer any questions you have, explain our work in more detail and tell you where you can find further information about how your gift will make a difference to the lives of thousands of adults and children with a stoma.
  • We will use your gift wisely and cost-effectively so that it has the greatest impact for ostomates.
  • You can change your mind about leaving us a legacy at any time and we will respect your decision.
  • Any personal information that you choose to give us will be handled securely and confidentially. We will always respect your privacy - you choose how often we contact you and by what means.
