What's the story you wish to leave behind?

"Money can't buy everything - it's of no use to a person who leaves the world. However, money can be very effective when it comes to helping people who needs a hand at very rough times. I have made a Will that includes a legacy gift, and the reason is simple - I wish more people could find peace in their lives."

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.

 

What do you care about?

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. Send your old Will to us so we could arrange for a lawyer to revise it for you. 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.




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. If you use our service, we will arrange to have a lawyer and a staff member of that lawyer's firm to be your witnesses.




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.




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 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




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.
