Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.




For further information, please download a brochure here or contact Iqtadar Hasnain, Open Age Deputy Director, on 020 8962 5583 / 07930 413 691 or email
