A gift in your will

Our mission, to offer the Bible to every man, woman and child, is big. It’s not a five year project, or even a 50 year project. We’ve been connecting people to the Bible for over 200 years, and we’re building on the foundations of those who’ve gone before us. But there’s still so much to do.

Legacy gifts are one of the most significant ways of ensuring the work continues; by remembering us when you make your will, you’ll enable people in the future to experience the Bible for themselves. Your legacy could transform thousands of lives by the word of God.

Why leave a legacy

Today, as Christianity grows around the world, we’re translating and producing Bibles in printed and digital formats, so that people can engage with Scripture in their heart language. Your legacy gift can help us translate the Bible into new languages, distribute Bibles to communities too poor to buy their own, or help people engage with the Bible and discover its value for themselves.

Feel free to download these films to share with your church or group.

How you can leave a legacy

  1. Think about what you have – your estate and assets – and who you’d like to be your executor.
  2. Choose who you will remember in your will, including family, friends and the causes you care about, like Bible Society.
  3. Decide who will write your will. We strongly suggest using a solicitor to make sure everything is legal and valid.

Please take a moment to complete our get in touch form, giving us notice of your intentions. 

Don’t forget: If you already have a will, and wish to add Bible Society as one of your beneficiaries, ask a solicitor to help you complete a codicil and then keep it safe with your will.

Why our supporters left a gift in their will

I love God's word - and I want others to treasure it too!

I want people around the world to know about God and his love for us.

I would like the work of the Bible Society to go on when I am no longer around
