Giving through your will

By including Compassion in your will, you will have the opportunity to not only provide for your family, but also to continue your legacy of furthering God’s Kingdom.

To include Compassion in your will, use our wording from the sample bequest statements below. If your desire for your bequest is to ensure that your sponsored child(ren) are supported until their graduation, use the text from illustration 1 or 2 in the sample wording.

If you desire completion of sponsorship, contact us to ensure we can fulfill your request and note it in your record.

Gifts of securities

You can eliminate capital gains while growing the Kingdom with a gift of publicly traded securities like stocks, bonds, mutual funds or segregated funds.

Living sponsorship

Many Compassion sponsors take comfort in knowing that even if they pass away before their sponsored child completes the Compassion program, that child will be supported through graduation.

You can easily ensure this by creating a living sponsorship (prepaying your sponsorship). You can create a living sponsorship in your will, with a cash gift, a gift of securities or life insurance.
