Wills & Bequests

"We want to leave something for people who can benefit from our money when we are no longer here. So we made World Vision a beneficiary of a percentage of our entire estate, along with our children and other organizations. We are happy to have our giving continue on after we are gone."
Ronald and Lois Pollard,
World Vision partners since 1989

Many of our partners have chosen to include World Vision in their estate plan so they can continue to help build a brighter future for children even after they are gone. By making a "gift of a lifetime" in this way, you too can continue to bring hope to children even after your lifetime. To ensure your ongoing impact long into the future, you can:

How it works
  1. Sign the appropriate paperwork making World Vision a beneficiary of your will, trust, insurance or retirement assets (see sample bequest language).
  2. After your lifetime, money and assets are distributed to your heirs and World Vision as directed by your estate plan documents.
  3. World Vision uses your bequest for the purpose(s) you specify.
  • Maintain control of your assets during your lifetime
  • Have the flexibility to modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • Reduce your taxable estate by the amount given to World Vision
  • Make a significant gift to World Vision and designate how it should be used.
  • Experience the satisfaction of knowing you can continue to help children even after you are gone.
