Leaving a lasting legacy

Read about the power of Gifts in Wills

Why are Gifts in Wills so important to UNICEF?

At UNICEF, we are a community of people united by one belief; that every child should have the chance to change the world. Gifts in Wills give us the funds we need to help us reach the most vulnerable children across the world and provide the support they need in order not just to survive, but to thrive.

One of the most powerful ways that you can join us in this fight is by leaving a gift in your Will. You can be sure that a gift in your Will to UNICEF will build a better world and transform many children’s lives like Alice.

How do I leave a gift in my Will?

When making or updating your Will, you just need to let your solicitor know your intentions. There is no obligation to let us know and you can change your mind at any time.

At UNICEF, we respect that the decision to leave a gift in your Will is special and personal. That’s why we have developed a free Gifts in Wills guide to share more information to help you consider this decision in your own time and provide a clear step by step process.

Our free guide includes how to make or update your Will and how your legacy will have a lasting impact for children.

Take a stroll down memory lane with us

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

Can you believe that we are now over 70 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 a personalised Timeline video with us.
