Write your will for free and choose to leave a gift to the Royal Entomological Society 

When it comes to writing your will, it can be difficult to know where to start. We’re now able to share an easy way to provide for everyone and everything you care about.  

We’ve teamed up with Farewill, the UK’s leading will writing service, to help you get your will written online or over the phone. An easy-to-follow guide will help you at every stage, asking the right questions and making sure you are confident about the final document. 

As part of composing your will we hope that you are able to consider remembering the Royal Entomological Society. Leaving a gift to our charity can help inspire a new generation of entomologists and leave a legacy that can help secure the future of insect science. 

Leaving a gift in your will could help secure the future of entomology

The Royal Entomological Society has partnered with the UK’s best rated will writers Farewill to help you write your will for free.

With only an estimated 10% of the world’s insects identified, and an urgent need to develop entomological skills in the UK and around the world, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to grow our education and outreach programmes. In future years, we will inspire and support early career entomologists and those looking to enter the discipline to improve and share their skills with our global community.

Our Free Will Writing Service is available now, and every will is checked by a Farewill specialist.
