Why leave a gift to Concern? Any gift you may choose to leave helps us stay working where poverty is most extreme, until the day that we are no longer needed – until the day no mother or father struggles to feed their child. When hunger is gone for good. By leaving a gift to Concern in your Will, you’ll share the extraordinary feeling of knowing that your lasting memory will be one of hope and support for future generations.
Your legacy gift can make a real difference
Concern is capable of making a real difference, but eliminating poverty doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why legacies are so important to us. They provide the confidence we need to move forward, in order to make this a better world.
All of us want to imagine a brighter future – not just for our children, but for people the world over. Human nature is about building towards something better, delivering new opportunities and, ultimately, changing the world we live in.
Your gift could help the world's poorest people free themselves from hunger for future generations.
For over 50 years, Concern has been working to make the vision we share with our supporters a reality: the vision of a world where people’s lives are not limited by the lack of enough nutritious food. Together, we continue to help millions of the world’s poorest communities find their own solutions to hunger and lift themselves out of poverty.
Much of this work has only been possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters and, notably, those who have chosen to support our work by leaving a gift in their Will. These very special gifts are crucial to making sure our life-saving work continues for future generations. They also help ensure our supporters’ values of concern for others and determination to end hunger live on – continuing to touch and transform the lives of some of the world’s poorest people long into the future.
If you would like to leave a gift to Concern in your Will, we can help you to create or amend your Will for free.
I know that this is a very personal decision. But I can assure you, in the three decades I’ve worked at Concern, gifts in Wills have had a phenomenal impact in reducing extreme poverty, hunger and suffering around the world.
