Leave a legacy


Writing a will ensures that your wishes are carried out, providing for your loved ones and the causes you care about. 

A gift in your will can make a real difference. You could help keep a child safe from violence, give them the food they need to survive, provide them with water in times of drought. You could help a child survive and thrive. 

Please click on your country below and discover how to give the gift of life through a legacy:



UNICEF has a long history of creating positive change for children and their families. We were founded in 1946 to provide life-saving support to the most vulnerable children in the aftermath of World War 2.

Thanks to our supporters, UNICEF has worked for more than seven decades for children and their rights: to ensure that children grow up safe, healthy and educated, and are protected against violence, abuse and discrimination.

And legacy gifts are vital to UNICEF’s life-saving work with children, providing core resources that allow us to expand and develop our long-term programs for children with confidence.

Writing a will is a thoughtful act, making it easier for your family and friends, while making sure your wishes are followed the way you intend. And whatever the size of your gift, in our hands it will go a long way. By leaving a gift in your will to the work of UNICEF, you can help us give tomorrow’s children the chance to grow up safe, happy and healthy.

Depending on the country you live in, there may be different practical ways to leave a gift for the future, such as through leaving a gift in your will, designating UNICEF as a beneficiary in your life insurance, donating securities and other types of legacy gifts.

We understand that your legacy will be made after careful consideration and if you have any questions or queries, please do contact us.

It’s simple. Your legacy can save and transform the lives of children in the future.
