Leave a gift to Oxfam in your Will

From Oxfam's first appeal in 1948, to the famine of Ethiopia and the crisis in Syria – we will always act, we will speak out, and with you we stand against poverty.

Today, we’re a movement of millions of people, all working towards one goal – an end to poverty for everyone. Your will is a testament of what you believe in. And by leaving a gift in your Will to Oxfam, you can keep changing lives for generations to come.

Our free legacy pack can help you make or amend your Will. As well as tips and worksheets, you'll find a glossary of legal terms and stories from the people you are helping to support with your vital donations.

Why I left a gift in my Will

"Oxfam is so experienced when people’s lives are turned upside down. They are always one of the first organisations on the ground in a crisis. So when I retired and made a will I included Oxfam. I wanted to know that even when I’m no longer here, I am helping Oxfam to continue their work”
– Doreen Cooke, a supporter who has left a gift to Oxfam in her Will

"I just don’t think it’s fair. The idea that some children go to bed hungry is hard to live with. I hope that somewhere, in some far corner of the world, my gift is going to make a difference.”
– Barbara Tatton, a supporter who has left a gift to Oxfam in her Will.

“The people that Oxfam helps want what we want – water, food and shelter. I’m doing the easy bit – it doesn’t cause me any hardship to write a line in my Will, but it makes a difference.“
– Gerry Ryder, a supporter who has left a gift to Oxfam in his Will
