Leave a legacy of love and hope
CAFOD is proud to be a member of Your Catholic Legacy - a group of charities working together to protect the future of Catholic good causes by spreading the word about gifts in Wills.
Every day, millions of people around the world are helped by Catholic organisations and the Church. In turn, Catholic causes depend upon the kindness of the Catholic community; and especially gifts left in the wills of parishioners and supporters.
That’s why Catholic charities have come together to raise awareness of the impact of legacy gifts to the work of Catholic charities.
Leave a gift to charity in your Will
The Your Catholic Legacy group is made up of about 25 Catholic charities working across many different causes
Speaking at the launch of the campaign, the Late Archbishop Emeritus Peter Smith of Southwark said: “I don’t think people fully appreciate how much Catholic charities put into care of the poor, the homeless, prisoners and other vulnerable groups.”
“Legacies play a crucial role in funding the work of Catholic charities. No matter how big or small, a charitable gift in your will brings hope to poor communities across the globe, enables the sharing of God’s love and provides those in greatest need with a vital lifeline.”
Whether you leave something for your local community, a national service or aid projects and missions in developing countries; you can leave a legacy of love and hope to people in their hour of need.
So what will your Catholic legacy be?
