Margaret Boden, David McNair and senator David Norris outside Irish parliament People consider including Christian Aid in their will for a variety of personal reasons, including:

  • As an act of faith

  • As a way of acknowledging the many blessings they’ve received throughout their own life

  • To ensure their values of compassion and justice live on after they’ve gone


At Christian Aid we know that a legacy is not just a financial gift, but a gift of trust.

When you include us in your Will, you can trust that your gift will be put to its best possible use in our fight to end poverty, and benefit the world’s most vulnerable communities.

Maggie's story

Maggie travelled to Bolivia to see how gifts in Wills to Christian Aid can change lives.

Margaret Boden, David McNair and senator David Norris outside Irish parliament

Maggie’s husband David left a gift to Christian Aid in his Will.

'I met David on a walking holiday, and two years later we were married. He was passionate about Christian Aid. He always did voluntary work for them, and when he retired he became the local secretary – it became much more like a full-time job for him!

'He wanted to be pro-active in helping people. He felt that because Christian Aid was so important to him throughout his life, then with his legacy it could carry on. We all feel very proud of him.'
