Leaving a Legacy
Why leave a legacy?
Leaving a legacy in your will is a way to leave a lasting impact on the lives of disabled children in Africa.
You do not have to be rich to leave a legacy to AbleChildAfrica – and we understand that as you write your will you will have other priorities to consider. But any gift, of any size, would mean we can continue doing so much to change the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the world.
With the support you plan to leave behind we can continue growing our reach to help disabled children’s lives through education, health, family engagement, community based rehabilitation, livelihoods, sport and awareness raising.
What can you leave?
Depending on your circumstances you can leave:
A share of your assets
A fixed sum of money, or
A specific item of value.
Your donation will also be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated, or reduce your Inheritance Tax rate, if more than 10% of your estate is left to charity.
Our promise to you
We understand that leaving a legacy is a special and personal decision. We promise to treat your decision with courtesy, sensitivity and respect. We would also be happy to answer any questions you have about how it will make a difference to the lives of children we work for and with. And with the pride we take in our value for money approach, we can assure you that your gift will also be treated so that it has the greatest impact for the children we work with.
