Why leave a gift?

Gifts left in Wills play a crucial role in the ongoing funding of our projects in Africa. They enable our supporters to continue with their participation in our work, not just for today, but always; and they allow School Aid to plan and maintain a steady level of support to children in Africa well into the future. Leaving a gift in your Will is the perfect way of knowing that your support will continue to have an impact on the issues that matter to you.

After providing for your loved ones, a small gift in your Will could make all the difference to an African child whose prospects are limited. It would support our vision and strengthen our long term plans to encourage a sustainable future for African school children through library development and literacy initiatives.

Research has shown that more than a third of people who support charities say they would leave a gift in their Will after family and friends have been provided for. However, only 7 percent of people actually make the necessary arrangements. If you would like to leave a small gift to School Aid, you will need to make a Will if you don’t already have one, or add a codicil (a short amendment) to your existing Will that mentions the type of gift and the name of the charity you would like to benefit from it.
