Leave CAFOD a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will to charity is a wonderful way to ensure that your faith, hope and love live on and reach out to future generations affected by poverty and injustice.

What’s so special about a charity legacy gift? 

Once we start to think about the kind of world we are leaving to future generations, we look at things differently... the world is a gift which we have freely received and must share with others.

Pope Francis, Laudato Si'

Legacy gifts help CAFOD respond quickly when emergencies strike and make long-term commitments to communities to help them overcome poverty and injustice.

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