Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will - also known as a legacy or a bequest - to CAFOD is a wonderful way to ensure that your faith, love and compassion live on and reach out to future generations.

What’s so special about legacies?

One in eight of all the people we reached last year were helped by gifts in supporters’ wills. Without them, much of our work just would not be possible.

Legacies help us to respond quickly when emergencies strike and to make long-term commitments to communities in need. Together we can build a better and fairer world for all God’s children.

Marjorie’s legacy of life and hope

Marjorie van den Bosch was committed to helping poor and disadvantaged communities. Having supported CAFOD for forty years she continues to play a part in our work - thanks to the gift she left in her will. 

Seeing CAFOD’s work first hand has helped me appreciate why my grandmother left a legacy.
