Why should I leave a legacy to Food for the Hungry?
All financial gifts are vital to the work that we do. They help us to run our sustainable development programmes within some of the poorest countries in the world. Your gift will help transform lives and see communities move from simply surviving to actively thriving.
How do I get started?
It might seem like a daunting task, but making a will is the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out after you die. We understand that your loved ones come first, so if you do decide to include a bequest to us, we are willing to pay for a local solicitor of your choosing to help you write your will.
Can I change my will to leave a gift to Food for the Hungry?
Yes you can. If there are no other changes you need to make you can request a solicitor to make an amendment, or codicil. We are also willing to pay your solicitor’s cost for any amendments that need to be made if you are including a bequest to us.
What kind of gift can I leave to Food for the Hungry?
- A residuary gift is a percentage of your estate once any specified gifts have been made to friends and family. Many people choose to leave this type of gift to a charity because its value will be dependent on the value of your estate at any given time rather than a set amount. This provides supporters with more flexibility when deciding how to ensure that their loved ones are well looked after first and foremost.
- A pecuniary gift is a specific amount of money. It’s worth bearing in mind that the effects of inflation mean that this type of gift is likely to lose value over time and may end up being less than you initially intend.
“But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving” (2 Corinthians 8:7).

A legacy given to Food for the Hungry is, for me, an act of gratitude to our Heavenly Father, and a means of demonstrating something of the enduring love of his Son, for those most in need in our World.
