No one likes to think about the day when they won’t be around anymore, but preparing for the inevitable is one of the most responsible things you can do for your family, friends and wider community.
By making a last will and testament, you’ll ensure that your final wishes will be carried out, and any financial matters settled.
When writing a will, many people choose to leave a gift (financial or otherwise) to a chosen charity. This final act of generosity is a gracious gesture, which enables charities, both at home and abroad, to continue their good work.
Why Should I Leave a Donation to Charity in My Will?
By leaving a donation to charity in your will, you can provide for the world’s most vulnerable and at-risk populations during a natural disaster or war.
Whether you’ve been an advocate of a chosen charity throughout your life or have recently decided to leave a donation in your will, your gift will benefit those most in need. Your gift ensures that your legacy will be felt for generations to come.
How Will My Gift Help?
We, like you, have seen the world change greatly over the past seven decades. Europe has come together, man has walked on the moon, the internet has connected us all and millions more children live to see their fifth birthday.
A gift in your will could help even more children reach this milestone. Today, millions of children still die from easily curable diseases or preventable causes, but, with your support, we can help change this. You are part of the generation that has saved more children than any other and a gift in your will ensures you’ll keep saving children.
Legacy gifts work to achieve a real difference for the world’s most vulnerable children. These donations help fund long-term projects, which may take many years to complete but will save lives and create countless opportunities for years to come.
We could not be able to help a single child without our supporters. By asking you to consider leaving a gift in your will, we’re asking you to keep supporting children and to keep making that vital difference in children’s lives.
