Leave a gift in your Will

On this page:

Making the world a fairer place for older people

Older people the world over face challenging situations including discrimination, poverty, loneliness, and lack of support. A gift in your Will could help change this. Because without legacy gifts, many of our projects, which are all tailored to older people, simply wouldn’t be possible.

After your loved ones have been provided for, a gift in your Will could ensure the world is a fairer place for everyone, regardless of their age, long into the future.

How to leave a gift in your Will 

If you have not already written a Will, then we would recommend that you speak to a qualified professional such as a solicitor to create one. If you already have a Will and you wish to include a gift to Age International in it, there may not be any need to rewrite it. You can ask your solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil).

Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the different types of gift you can leave. The suggested legal wording in our legacy guide will assist your solicitor in drawing up or amending your Will to include your gift to our vital work.

A legacy gift in action

A kind legacy left by one of our supporters has enabled Age International to fund an incredible programme called 'Better Health for Older People'. It has made a huge impact to over 60,000 older people living in Kenya and Mozambique, and for this we are incredibly grateful. Thanks to this incredible gift, older people can now have access to better health care in medical clinics.
