"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."

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.

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?

Any one of your executors, beneficiaries or guardians dies
