Leave a gift in your Will

A gift in your Will to Sense International could transform the lives of children and adults with deafblindness in some of the poorest communities in the world.

Why gifts in Wills are important

A woman and child. The woman is guiding the child's hand to a flower.Around the world children and adults with deafblindness are missing out on things that many of us take for granted on a daily basis. Our experience shows that lives can be transformed, with improved health, mobility and communication – enabling people with deafblindness to live, learn and thrive and to play an active role within their communities.

Gifts in Wills are particularly special because they allow us to make a long term commitment – deafblindness is complex and it takes time and commitment to have a real impact. Gifts in Wills mean we can continue to support families in the long term.

Alisha, a young child, playing with a ball while sitting on her mother's lap. “I wish I had known in the beginning that deafblindness didn’t mean the end of the world for my child. With the tireless help of Sense International, Alisha spoke for the very first time when she was ten. I started crying, it was nothing less than a miracle for us. I gathered our neighbours to make them hear Alisha’s voice.” Sahila – Alisha’s mother

How to leave a gift in your Will

It is incredibly generous of you to consider including a gift in your Will to Sense International. Every gift we receive, of any size, makes a lasting difference to the people we support.

There are three main types of gift you can choose to leave:

  • A share of what’s left after family and friends are provided for (a residuary gift)
  • A fixed sum of money (a pecuniary gift)
  • A specific gift such a piece of furniture, jewellery or even a property

Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the different types of gift you can leave and the correct wording to use.

All you have to do is give you solicitor our details, below, and they will do the rest.
