Leave a gift of enduring faith and love

A legacy gift can be a natural continuation of a supporter’s commitment to share God’s love and compassion with persecuted Christians around the world.

For over 50 years, your generous gifts and prayers have enabled Christians to stand strong in their faith in the face of persecution. With your support, Release’s partners in over 25 countries of the world are providing practical help, pastoral care and support to Christians who need it the most.

By including a gift to Release International in your will you can enable our partners to continue to help persecuted Christians to fight hate with love.

Writing or updating your Will

A valid will ensures that your estate is distributed according to your wishes. It enables you to provide for your family and loved ones as well as the charities that you care about.

If you have not made a will or wish to update your will here are a few options to choose from in finding a solicitor.

  • Find a local solicitor using The Law Society’s database of solicitors.
  • If you wish to find a Christian solicitor The Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship have created a useful directory of its members – click here to use this free service.

About Inheritance Tax

All legacies left to charity are completely free from inheritance tax. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on how to make your will as tax efficient as possible. This includes explaining new rules that reduce the rate of inheritance tax for people who leave at least 10 per cent of their estate to charity.

What type of gift can I leave to Release International in my Will?

The best type of gift you can leave to a charity in your will is a share of the remaining estate after all other gifts have been made.

Any percentage can be left to charity, and this type of legacy enables you to provide for your family and loved ones, as well as ensuring that the gift keeps pace with inflation.
