At the very core of Amnesty International is the belief that the actions of individuals can make a difference. What better way to demonstrate this than by leaving a legacy to us and helping to change the future for the better?

What difference could your legacy make?

  • £500 could cover the cost of setting up 'Alert Committees' to help prevent child marriages by letting authorities know when girls are at risk.
  • £5,000 could pay for media fellowships in developing countries for four journalists, enabling them to report and raise awareness of human rights violations. – change to percentage
  • Leaving a 10% share of £300,000 estate could enable us to conduct two human rights investigations in crisis countries with security equipment, satellite imagery and forensic support.

Did you know?

Around 20% of Amnesty International UK’s funds come from gifts in Wills. Legacies are therefore vital in sustaining our Human Rights work.

Why Sue Jex chose to leave a legacy

“As well as my monthly donation, I am leaving a gift in my Will to Amnesty International UK to continue its inspiring work. I want to help ensure everyone has the same freedoms and rights I am lucky to enjoy. I want my grandson and future generations to grow up in a more peaceful, harmonious world where human rights are protected.”
