Gift

Leaving a gift in your will is an investment which will have a long-lasting impact, helping to build a better and brighter future for the communities we work with in Africa – from giving children the education they deserve to helping their parents invest in their family’s future.

Having spent your working life providing for yourself and your family, we understand that what you leave behind has been hard-earned, carefully managed and is extremely important to you. If you do choose to leave a legacy to Build Africa we will ensure this continues to be the case and promise to use your gift carefully to directly support our beneficiaries in Africa.

Our Promise

  • We know how important your gift is and we promise to use it wisely and effectively
  • We will respect your privacy and if you decide to let us know that you have included us in your will, we will treat this information in complete confidence
  • We appreciate what you are doing for us, and we take our responsibility very seriously in efficiently administering all funds we receive

With a legacy, you have an opportunity to invest in the future of the communities we work with in rural Africa and create a better life for them for years to come.
