Leaving a lasting legacy

Read about the power of Gifts in Wills

Why are Gifts in Wills so important to UNICEF?

At UNICEF UK, we are united by one belief: that every child should have the chance to experience a healthy and happy childhood. Gifts in Wills give us the funds we need to help us reach the most vulnerable children across the world in more than 190 countries through vaccines, clean water, education, therapeutic food, and more. 

One of the most powerful ways that you can help us make a difference is by leaving a gift in your Will. By doing so, you can ensure that children not only survive but thrive.

We're helping children learn

In 2021 alone, we provided school books and other learning materials to 42 million children around the world.

How do I leave a gift in my Will?

Leaving a gift in your Will to UNICEF is easy, thanks to our partnerships with our trusted Will-writing partners Co-op Legal Services and Farewill. When you’ve made a decision, there is no obligation to let us know, but it helps us plan for the future if you decide to tell us that you have left a gift in your Will to us. 

We have developed a free Gifts in Wills guide to share more information to help you consider this decision in your own time. Our free guide also includes information on how to make or update your Will and how your gift will have a lasting impact on children. 

Leave a lasting legacy

How much do you remember from decades of momentous events, dodgy hairdos, wonderful inventions and incredible change? Nostalgia makes us who we are. Take a stroll down memory lane with us. 

UNICEF was founded in 1946 to help children affected by World War II.

Can you believe that we are now over 75 years old? We have grown, with the help of our supporters, to become the world’s leading organisation for children.  

Like UNICEF, you have grown too. Let’s look back at some memories together. Create and download a nostalgic personalised Timeline video with us.
