"Equal access to education should be available to all children to help them flourish. That’s why I’ve made a Will to donate part of my legacy to Oxfam Hong Kong – I want to help more children through education and poverty alleviation programmes. I’m glad that my gift will carry my legacy forward to build a brighter future for children."

Lawyer Drafts Your Will
A qualified lawyer in our network will then draft your Will to ensure that your wishes are accurately reflected, giving you a complete peace of mind.
Sign & Witness Your Will
When your Will is ready, we will arrange to have you sign it at the lawyer's office. The lawyer will explain the contents of the Will and confirm them with you, then witness your signature of the Will.
Professional Support from Lawyers
We collaborate with law firms that donate their time and expertise for a bigger impact. In support of ForeverGift's mission, each law firm helps you write your Will for free.
This free service covers a "basic" Will, which refers to a Will governed by the laws of Hong Kong where you are leaving everything to a few family members, friends and charities, with one to four executors.
If you have complex family circumstances, own assets outside of Hong Kong, require setting up of trusts, powers of attorney or other legal documents or devices, you may need for pay a law firm for these additional services. Where that is the case, the law firm will provide you with a quote, and it is up to you whether to accept. We at ForeverGift will not be involved in these discussions or charge you any fees.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does a Will do?
A Will is important regardless of how much assets you have. On one hand your can provide support for your loved ones, and make gifts to organisations you support. On the other hand, having a Will ensures that your wishes are made clear to friends and family, reducing the chances of future disputes, and the unnecessary pressure and costs involved.
What happens if I don't write a Will?
Your assets will be shared out following the legal rules of intestacy. This means the beneficiaries you have in mind may not receive the distribution of assets as you may have wished.
Is my Will legally binding?
To make your Will legally binding, you need to sign a hardcopy of the Will that we provide to your address, alongside two witnesses.
What if I already have a Will? Can I revise the Will to add a gift to a charity?
The most straightforward way to do so is to make a brand new Will. Make sure you destroy the old Will to avoid confusion in the future.
Can I call you to make a Will, instead of filling in an online form?
Yes, please reach us on +852 5468 3635 so we can arrange a representative to assist you.
What steps do I need to take after receiving the lawyer-drafted Will?
Who should I pick as witnesses to my Will?
A witness could be a friend, neighbour, colleague or anyone else who is above the age of 18. Make sure the witness or his/her spouse are not beneficiaries under your Will.
How many witnesses are required to sign on my Will?
Two. Both witnesses must be 18 years old or above. They or their spouses should not be beneficiaries under your Will.
Are there any people who I should not pick as witnesses to my Will?
Beneficiaries named in your Will (e.g. if your will specifies that your daughter will receive your assets, then your daughter should not be a witness).
Spouses of your beneficiaries (e.g. if your Will specifies that your daughter will receive your assets, your daughter's husband should not be a witness to your Will).
Where should I store my Will?
After signing your Will, you need to keep it somewhere safe. Most people choose to keep their Will alongside other important documents, in a filing cabinet, drawer or a safety deposit box at a bank.
When should I update my Will?
We recommend reviewing your Will every two years. This is to make sure that any changes in your circumstances are reflected in your Will, such as:
You having a new child or grandchild
You getting engaged, married or divorced
You moving house
You buying or selling any property
You inheriting money or property
Any one of your executors, beneficiaries or guardians dies
You wanting to change any beneficiaries
You wanting to add a specific gift or message to someone you love
Is it possible to change my Will in the future?
Absolutely. If there are any changes in your circusmatcnes, which should be reflected in your Will, we suggest that you make a brand new Will. Make sure you destroy the old Will to avoid confusion in the future.
Can I choose not to leave any gifts to charities?
While you are not required to leave a gift, please do consider doing so.
