Charitable Legacies

We would like to graciously give a heartfelt thank you to all our members, patrons and past legators for all your generosity and backing over the 55 years we’ve been in operation – It means the world to us.

During the turbulent times of the past year and the ongoing worldwide pandemic, The Partially Sighted Society has continued its efforts in aiding and supporting those who struggle with their daily lives on account of their reduced eyesight. Despite the conditions we have managed to print over a million schoolbook pages for children in the UK, with the surplus going to underprivileged children with sight loss in Tanzania.

There are over 2 million people in the UK that are considered partially sighted, with that number expected to double to more than 4 million by the year 2050. Which means whilst we work hard every day to ensure our service users’ needs and wants are met, our journey ahead will be evermore challenging. Which in turn means our scope of operations will broaden significantly.

Therefore, we at the Partially Sighted Society are always accepting of legacy gifts in your will after you secure the future of those closest to you.

In the not so distant past, charitable legacies have ensured the survival of the society when financial hardships threatened to end our story before we had achieved our goals.

If you wish to leave us a legacy gift, you would not only be benefiting us and all those who use our service, you would also be a guaranteeing that less of your inheritance is taxable. If you were to donate 10% of your inheritance to the society, you could benefit from a 36%-40% reduction in tax on your inheritance fund.

We would also love for you to get in touch with us so we can personally thank you and as our doors reopen, we would like to reiterate how excited we are to have you come visit us in the near future.
