LEAVE A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

A lasting way to support families who have lost everything

Too many families around the world see their homes crumble after powerful cyclones, earthquakes and severe floods. Others have to flee their homes at a moment’s notice from life-threatening conflict.

Sadly, the number of displaced families is only set to increase in the future

After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift in your Will to ShelterBox. Help us build a future where no family is left without shelter.

We all have financial commitments, which means we can’t always do as much as we’d like to help other people. But, a gift left in your Will is an opportunity to give more than you might ever have been able to give in your lifetime. Get in touch to find out more.

THE POWER OF YOUR GIFT


Your support will help people like Nelie, who lives with her husband and nine children – five boys and four girls. Her youngest is two-month-old Roberto Jnr, who she is cradling in this photo.

Before Typhoon Tisoy swept through the Philippines in December 2019, Nelie’s family lived in a house near the beach.

But after the storm, they were forced to leave their destroyed home behind and move to new land.

We provided Nelie’s family with tarpaulin and other essential aid items to help them build their new home and rebuild their lives.

Your gift will help more families like theirs to get back on their feet after disasters and conflicts, long after you’ve gone.

I wanted to help families who have nothing left, whose homes have been flattened to dust and rubble, so I decided to leave a gift in my Will.”

-David, ShelterBox Legacy Donor

HOW TO LEAVE A GIFT IN YOUR WILL


Gift and estate planning is a simple and flexible way to meet your philanthropic and financial goals.

In fact, a planned gift can help you give more to the ongoing work of ShelterBox than you may have thought possible—while still providing you with favorable financial and/or tax benefits.

A planned gift can allow you to invest in the ShelterBox mission, providing disaster relief for families all over the world for generations to come. A planned gift can be your legacy, providing continued support long after your lifetime.

We are here to help with any questions or concerns about this process.
