A gift in your will

You can enable future generations to experience the Bible for themselves, and help ensure the Bible goes on changing lives for good.

Did you know that at least a quarter of our donated income comes from legacies? And when you consider that people have been remembering Bible Society in their wills since 1805, a huge amount of what we've achieved in opening up the Bible and seeing lives changed has been down to our supporters' legacy gifts.

Around the world people are waiting to experience God's word in their own language. Here at home, prisoners are asking for Bibles in increasing numbers and people who have grown up without Scripture are ready to encounter to it in new ways. This makes a gift in your will a powerful, lasting investment in change for good.

How you can leave a Legacy

Make your will for free with these three simple steps:

  1. Head over to Bequeathed's website and start your will online for free. Bequeathed securely gathers all the information their legal adviser needs to create a draft will for you. There's a help chat there if you need it.
  2. Book an online video appointment with Bequeathed’s legal team or a meeting with a local legal firm in person. Your advisor will explore your wants and explain your options. 
  3. Your new will is sent to you along with instructions on executing it properly. If you choose a participating legal firm, they can help you sign it, witness it and store it securely for you. 

The legal firm, or Bequeathed’s inhouse legal team, provides 30 minutes of legal advice (or 45 minutes if you are a couple each making a will), and a free will at the end. If your circumstances are complicated and you require further legal advice, the advisor will explain what’s needed and give you an estimate. It's up to you then whether you accept and pay or proceed with the free basic will.
