Gifts in Wills

By leaving a gift in your Will to SSAFA, you can help us be there for our Armed Forces family for generations to come.

A gift in your Will can help protect the future of the Armed Forces family

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most effective ways of helping the Armed Forces community overcome their personal challenges and rebuild their lives.

Right now, gifts left in Wills make up as much as a third of SSAFA’s fundraising income. It’s no exaggeration to say we absolutely rely on them.

We help tens of thousands of people every year: serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans, and their families. And the issues they are coming to us with are getting more and more complex.

A gift in your Will can help us meet this need and plan for the future. This extraordinary kind of support will help us carry on offering life-changing help to everyone who needs it – for as long as they need it.

By deciding to leave a gift to SSAFA in your Will, you can help protect our Armed Forces family for generations to come.
