A gift in your Will is our protection at sea
Your legacy could help lifeboat crews save lives at sea.
Leave a gift in your Will to the RNLI and you will be helping brave lifeboat crews save lives. A gift in your Will helps protect our selfless lifesavers when they go to the aid of those in danger at sea and strive to save every one. 6 in 10 launches are only possible thanks to gifts in Wills. We need the help of generous supporters like you to save lives at sea.
If you are considering leaving a gift to the RNLI, thank you. Any gift, large or small, makes a real difference. It's a gift that will be remembered, because if you do choose to remember the RNLI in your Will, after we are notified that we have received your gift, your name will be added to the side of a legacy lifeboat, alongside the names of others who have decided to support us in this special way.
Request our free Gifts in Wills guide to find out how to write or update your Will, get information on our free Wills service, and learn why your gift is vital to the RNLI's lifesaving work.

Your name on the side of a legacy lifeboat
When you leave a gift in your Will to the RNLI, your name will be added to the side of a legacy lifeboat, alongside the names of other individuals who have generously left a gift in their Will.
