Let your humanity live on

Throughout history, there have always been attacks on freedom, justice and dignity. It can be sad to see what human beings are capable of, but there is always hope. Because for every perpetrator, there are people who care enough to protect human rights, wherever they are under threat.

By supporting Amnesty International, you've been on the right side of history, shaping some of the most important moments of our times. By pledging a gift in your Will, you can let your humanity live on.

Writing or updating your will in 4 simple steps

1. Write or update your list of assets

List the value of everything you own and whether you share ownership of anything. Also include any debts that could reduce your estate. You can then use our free Will writing service to make or update your Will.

2. Choose your executors

In your Will, include the names of the people you trust to carry out your wishes. These can be family members, friends, or professionals such as solicitors and accountants. It’s best to consult your chosen executors before you appoint them.

3. Support the people and causes you care about

After any other beneficiaries are taken care of, you may wish to support the charities and causes you care about. If you would like to include Amnesty International UK, please use the wording supplied on the right.

4. Finish your Will

You will need two independent witnesses present when you sign your Will. These witnesses cannot be beneficiaries of your estate. Then choose a safe place to store your Will, where it will be easy to locate. It’s important to keep your Will up to date if your circumstances change.
