Gifts in wills

Leaving a legacy to Y Care International in your Will

At Y Care International, our work serving some of the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised communities is enabled by an enduring love, which flows from one generation to the next. It is through this passing on of love – from mother to daughter, father to son, friend to stranger – that we find the tools we need to face the challenges that may come our way.

Your Will is an opportunity to give the gift of enduring love. A gift in your Will to Y Care International is a gift which can help end hunger, enable access to education, bring clean water and ensure sustainable livelihoods for people living in some of the world’s poorest communities.

A note about privacy:

Some supporters want to keep any gifts totally private. When you use the above link to make a free will we find out about the existence of a gift and how much has been left. If you want to keep this confidential please use this link to make a will online. Whichever way you give – we are incredibly grateful for your generosity.
