Support Us


The Moredun Foundation is a registered charity that supports livestock health and welfare through research and education.

Formed by farmers for farmers, the Foundation supports a broad range of research projects within the world renowned Moredun Research Institute to help improve the understanding, treatment and prevention of infectious disease.

The Moredun Foundation develops and delivers a variety of outreach programmes for farmers, vets, SQPs, students and the general public. These educational projects ensure that the research outputs, knowledge and expertise generated at Moredun are disseminated as widely as possible to boost awareness and management of a range of livestock health issues.

When you make or update your will, it's only right that you think of your loved ones first.  After making provisions for your family and friends, please consider helping us.  A gift in your will (often called a legacy) is a simple and enduring way to support our work.  No gift is too small to make a difference and to help us promote the highest possible standards for animal health and welfare through research and education. 

It's easy to include a charity in your will, but you should always consult a professional such as a solicitor to ensure your will reflects your intentions. Including The Moredun Foundation in your will is a big decision to make and we thank you for your generosity and for thinking of us.
