Gifts in Will

By remembering Children Believe in your Will, you'll build a better world

Leave a gift in your Will

You can create a world where kids access life's essentials and an education, so they can build skills, learn their rights and use their voice for change.

With a gift in your Will, you'll lay the foundation for children to chase their dreams.

“I’m in school today because of a caring donor”

“Girls I know had to drop out of school because of their water chores. Fetching water and carrying it a kilometre back to the village took so much time and energy; we were too exhausted to learn.
 
But I don’t have to give up school to get water anymore. Because of a caring donor who remembered Children Believe in her Will, we have a wonderful well — we even have enough water to grow a vegetable garden. It’s a blessing to continue our education. It wouldn’t have been possible without that kind donor.”— Nana Manipouguidiba

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

What makes a gift in a Will so special is it can include assets you’d never think of in a regular donation — the value of your home, for example, or your investments. Because a gift in a Will comes from your net worth, you might make a much bigger difference this way.

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.

We encourage you to speak to you financial planner and your loved ones as you plan your estate. Of course,we're happy to help.

By donating assets other than cash, you can easily save capital gains and estate taxes and can make a bigger impact than you ever thought possible. Examples of other types of gifts you can leave are stocks and securities, life insurance, RRSPs or RRIFs, Annuities and more.
You can use a legal clause called a codicil to update a Will and make a planned gift to Children Believe. It’s easy. You can find sample codicil language here.
 
And, although we’ve had a recent name change, from Christian Children’s Fund of Canada to Children Believe, there’s no need to update your Will to ensure we can accept the bequest.

We encourage you to speak to a financial planner and your loved ones as you plan your estate. Of course, we're happy to help.
