Give a Gift of Everlasting Light
Leave a Forever Legacy
Every Legacy Donor Has
A Unique Story
May (left) is a long-term passionate donor of Orbis.
"A few years ago, I redrafted my will to not only benefit my loved ones, but also worthy causes such as Orbis. Enabling each of us to continue contributing to our world after we leave it, legacy donations are an easy but vitally important way of helping the less fortunate. For me, the most important thing about Orbis’s work is that opening needlessly blind eyes is only the beginning. Those whose sight Orbis saves can not only take better care of themselves but also their families. As the old saying has it "giving someone a fish simply feeds them for a day. Teaching them how to fish benefits them for the rest of their lives."

I simply wish to do more good,
My grandfather suffered from blindness. I wish my legacy gift could brighten the lives of others around the world.

Make a Will in 3 Steps
Submit Your Wishes
Apart from your charity gift, you should also tell us matters such as how you wish to distribute your other assets, who should execute your Will and so on. The whole process takes about 30 minutes.
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.
Saving little Marla from a life of blindness
Little Marla was born with congenital cataracts. If she hadn't received surgery at an Orbis-supported hospital in Mongolia, she would have suffered permanent vision loss. Thanks to the support of people like you, she is now just one member of the generations of children who can now grow up to lead independent lives with healthy sight.
What do you care about?
To create a world free from avoidable blindness, save and protect the sight of many people, transform lives one by one, until no one is needlessly blind.

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 your Hong Kong assets to a few family members, friends and charities. Each Will should have 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.
Vision & Mission
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.
Yet, not everyone is aware of this way of supporting the charities they love, or know where to get started.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 financial or personal circumstances are reflected in your Will, such as:
You getting engaged, married or divorced
You having a new child or grandchild
You buying or selling any property
You wanting to change any beneficiarie
Any one of your executors, beneficiaries or guardians dies
