Leave a legacy

A gift in your will can transform the lives of poor people

  •  - Leave a legacy - image



If you are able to remember Practical Action in your Will, it would mean so much to poor people around the world.

The donations we receive are vital in helping maintain hundreds of life-changing projects every day, but legacies help us do something extra special - they give us the confidence to plan ahead. By knowing we can count on future income, it means we can plan more projects to help lift more women, men and children out of poverty.

In return, we promise you this: that we'll spend every penny you pledge to us responsibly, efficiently and with the aim of eradicating poverty around the world. We will help people like Mriza Rahim, whose land in Bangladesh was left infertile due to the silt left by repeated flooding. By working together with Practical Action, Mriza can now grow enough pumpkins to feed his family.

Every legacy, no matter how large or small, is precious. And every legacy brings us a step closer to a future free from poverty.

A Codicil is a simple legal document which allows you to make changes to your existing Will, such as adding a gift to Practical Action, without writing an entirely new Will. We suggest that you use this form to instruct your solicitor of this change; he / she will ensure that the wording and process is correct and the Codicil is legally valid.
