Leave a European legacy

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to the European Movement in your will.

By leaving a gift in your will, you can help us build a European future – full of friendship, peace, cooperation and opportunities - for generations to come. We have been speaking out for European values for 75 years, and, post-Brexit, our work is more urgent than ever.

Unlike the pro-Brexit lobby, we are not funded by big business. Our movement is entirely reliant on individual donations from members and supporters. This is why a legacy gift can make a huge difference, and will help ensure that there is always a strong, well-resourced campaign making the case for Britain's place in Europe.

How to remember the European Movement in your will

We understand how personal the decision to leave a gift in your will is. Before you think of writing us into your will, we advise that you speak with those closest to you.

You can choose either to leave a pecuniary gift (of a fixed amount), or a residuary gift (a certain percentage of your estate). Any amount you feel comfortable pledging in your will can make a difference.

How your gift will help

The European Movement has been at the forefront of the fight for a European future for 75 years. We led the UK into Europe the first time, and now we are leading the fight again.

Our movement was founded in 1949 by Winston Churchill and still, to this day, our mission of building cooperation between the UK and Europe is entirely powered by members and supporters.

Although this gives us independence, it means that we survive on the generosity of those who share our values and worldview.

With our history, our values and our capacity, the European Movement is the only organisation that can reverse the calamity of Brexit. And, looking beyond Brexit, when the UK rejoins the European Union, as we know it will, we'll continue working to ensure that we remain at the heart of Europe, and to champion European values.

Your gift will fund our campaigning, outreach and education work. It will ensure that the pro-European perspective continues to be heard, loud and clear, over the years and decades ahead.
