Leaving a gift in your Will isn’t just for the very wealthy — it’s for anyone who cares deeply about a cause. If you believe no child should be held back by poverty and injustice, then you might consider giving a gift to Children Believe in your Will.
No. We understand how important your sponsored child is to you, but we can’t promise we’ll be able to fulfil a bequest to them, as they may not be in our program area when your gift is realized. You can opt to continue your sponsorship, ensuring the child you help today continues to receive support while they’re part of the program. You may also choose to allow us to use the gift where it’s needed most.
A gift in your Will extends a lifetime of giving. Perhaps you’ve sponsored children, or maybe picking gifts from our catalogue has become a beloved tradition. Including Children Believe in your Will builds on that generosity, creating a legacy of helping children.
You’ll be helping children access knowledge, training and opportunities to raise their voices and make positive change. You’ll provide life essentials: clean water, healthy food and safe places to grow and play. And, you’ll support the greatest tool we have in our global movement for change: education.
A type of gift called a residual gift is a great option to make sure your estate meets your needs. Think of your estate like a pie you can divide. You can leave a slice to each of your grandchildren, a slice to your church and a slice to Children Believe.
Sharing this information with us means we can appreciate and thank you for this future gift during your life, ensuring your specific requests can be fulfilled. And, if you’ve included sponsorship continuation as a gift in your Will, we can keep your sponsored child in the program during the probate period, until the gift is received.
