Why we need your support  

We are glad that you have found your way to our Gifts in Wills page.

By leaving a gift in your Will to The Salvation Army, your compassion and kindness will live on. Gifts in Wills fund half of our donated income, meaning that they are vital for us to carry out the life-changing work that we do. You will enable us to be there for future generations and to be there for those who need us the most. We care for thousands of people every day who might otherwise feel excluded, face loneliness and isolation or experience homelessness. 

Thank you for considering leaving us a gift in your Will – we are here to make Will writing as straightforward as possible.

  • If you don’t know where to start, we have a free Will Guide which breaks down the Will writing process that you can either download or receive a hard copy in the post.
  • If you are ready to start writing your Will you may like to take advantage of our free Will writing partners and have your Will written free of charge.
  • Or if you would like to have a chat with us please contact our friendly Legacy Team on 0800 144 4774 or email 

If you are an Executor and you wish to pay a legacy this cannot be done online, please call 020 7367 4656 or email
