Make a Forever Impact

on the Causes Closest to Your Heart

Leave a greater gift.

Create a lasting difference.

Vision & Mission

Yet, not everyone is aware of this way of supporting the charities they love, or know where to get started.

Around the world, people leave gifts to charities in their wills to support a cause, honour a loved one, or be remembered for something that matters to them. Many charities rely on these gifts to create a bigger impact and to thrive in the long term.

Your most impactful gifts start here. Start by making a will today.

Our vision is a world where everyone can leave a legacy and make a lasting impact on the causes closest to their hearts.

Our mission is to make it easy for you to give and charities to receive the most impactful gifts.

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?


如果生前沒有訂立遺囑,遺產分配安排會跟從法定先後次序,而你心目中的受益人未必得到如你所願的分配。 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. Both witnesses must be 18 years old or above. They or their spouses should not be beneficiaries under your will. It is also important that both witnesses watch you sign your will at the same time, and then add their own details and signatures to the will. If your will is ever contested in the future, your witnesses can testify that they watched you sign your will.




What if I already have a will? Can I revise the will by adding a gift to a charity?


The most straightforward way is to make a brand new will. Make sure you destroy the old will to avoid confusion in the future. You can also send us your existing will. We will arrange a lawyer to add a provision that specifies how you want to gift a charity or charities of your choice. Depending on the circumstances the lawyer may charge a fee for this service.




Can I call you to make a will, instead of filling in a form?


Yes, okease reach us on +852 5468 3635 so we can arrange a representative to assist you.




Can I choose not to leave any gifts to charities?


Yes. However, 可以,但這項免費服務的出現,全賴慈善機構的支持及一些義務律師的協助。因此,我們懇請你考慮捐贈一點遺產,延續你的善心,為世界爭取一個美好的將來。




What steps do I need to take after receiving the lawyer-drafted will?


After receiving your will in the mail, you need to sign a hardcopy of the will that we provide to your address, alongside two witnesses. Both witnesses must be 18 years old or above. They or their spouses should not be beneficiaries under your 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. It is also important that both witnesses watch you sign your will at the same time, and then add their own details and signatures to the will. If your will is ever contested in the future, your witnesses can testify that they watched you sign your will.




Are there any people who I should not pick as witnesses to my will?


Anyone who benefits from your will should not be a witness. This includes:

  • 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. It is also important that you tell your executors where your will is stored, so they can easily find it when the time comes.




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. This includes things like:

  • You have a new child or grandchild
  • You get engaged, married or divorced
  • You move house
  • You buy or sell any property
  • You inherit money or property
  • Any one of your executors, beneficiaries or guardians dies
  • You want to change any beneficiaries
  • You want 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.
