Leave a Legacy

Join the Legacy Society by including Concern Worldwide in your estate plans and help break the cycle of extreme poverty for future generations

The Concern Legacy Society

We all want to leave the world a better place than we found it — and leaving a legacy gift to Concern is an excellent way to do just that. Intergenerational poverty in the world’s poorest communities condemns successive generations to struggle for survival, but we have the solutions and expertise to help make this a thing of the past. 

A planned gift is one of the most powerful ways to make a real and lasting difference. If you choose to name Concern as a beneficiary of your estate, you will be invited to join our Legacy Society, a dedicated group of supporters extending their generosity into the future to help end extreme poverty, whatever it takes. 

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”     

Nelson Mandela

Legacy Society members receive regular program updates, recognition in Concern’s annual report, a certificate, a pin, a calendar, and access to exclusive Concern events, including an annual Society gathering.
