Bequests

Leave a gift in your Will

A bequest of any amount to Give Freedom International is one of the most effective ways you can help us prepare for tomorrow and create a world without human trafficking for future generations.

Your powerful legacy will help give freedom to vulnerable women and children in trafficking hotspots—along with critical education, counselling and holistic support to rebuild their lives.   

We know that leaving a charitable gift in your Will is a deeply personal decision—and that family and loved ones come first. We encourage you to talk with them about your intentions and why leaving the gift of freedom is important to you.

A legacy of freedom

Leaving a charitable gift in your Will, also called a bequest, is easier than you might think. But before we tell you how it’s done—we want to say THANK YOU.

Your estate represents a lifetime of hard work, challenges and triumphs. Which is why your decision to leave a legacy of freedom is nothing short of inspirational. Your generosity will change lives far beyond your lifetime. 

How to include a gift

It’s important to use the correct wording when leaving a gift in your Will. We strongly recommend that you speak with a solicitor or legal representative who can guide you through the process and help ensure your wishes are legally upheld.

You can choose from four main gift types:

safe children

A residual gift

This is the remainder of your estate, or a percentage of the remainder, after all other expenses and gifts are dispersed.
