LEAVE A LEGACY
Your legacy is a vital source of support for Orbis Africa. It will help provide long term funding and help us plan for new programmes we implement that will take us toward eliminating unnecessary blindness in children and adults on the continent.
We understand that loved ones and family come first in your financial plans, which makes your gift so greatly appreciated. When you leave a gift in your will to charity such as Orbis Africa you are supporting our work beyond your lifetime. It gives you the opportunity to make a contribution even if you cannot do so now. A legacy is a lasting memorial of your generosity and foresight, ensuring Orbis Africa’s continued commitment to improving the lives of children in South Africa and Africa, and eliminating preventable blindness.
There are three different types of gifts you can leave in your will:
Residuary – You could leave a percentage of your estate
Monetary – A specific sum of money
Asset – A specified item, property or investment
You can download the codicil for your Will and select your choice of legacy.
Your bequest is tax exempt and can lead to savings in estate duties. We assure you that your gift will be used for the greatest impact and we can offer you choices as to how your gift will be used. Alternatively, you can choose for your gift to be allocated to our priority programmes.
It is your choice to inform us of your legacy but should you wish to do so or would like more information, please do contact Christa Robijn firstname.lastname@example.org or call +27 21 447 7135.
Thank you for considering Orbis Africa.
