A gift in your Will to vulnerable children
If you’re bearing in mind a gift in your Will to SOS Children’s Villages in Zimbabwe, you’re including some of the children whom experienced trauma and distress in your embrace. Your legacy – be it magnificent or modest – is a gesture of pure love extended to a child you will probably never meet. Perhaps that child is yet to be born!
SOS Children’s Villages in Zimbabwe is dedicated to providing safe, warm, loving homes to children who have lost parental care or at risk.
Without an SOS Children’s Villages home and caregiver, these children would spend their days living in hunger and danger of exploitation and cruelty. Your gift not only rescues vulnerable children, it builds their future by providing a safe home, food, school, access to medical care – and most importantly, the love of an SOS mother who will raise the children until adulthood. As you well know, there’s nothing in life that compares to a mother’s love.
You may be surprised to realize how incredible a gift in your Will can be. People are sometimes thrilled to learn that an apparently modest inheritance can actually amount to more money than they gave in their entire lifetime. Inheritances are indeed an opportunity for ordinary supporters to make truly extraordinary philanthropic gifts.
If you do decide to make a gift in your Will, you are not alone. Your spirit of giving will live on – and indeed transform countless lives – for generations to come. The word ‘philanthropy’ means ‘love of humankind’. Surely, those of us who plan these bequests are making the noblest of philanthropic gifts.
If you would like to discuss a legacy gift with us, we would love to hear from you.
