Make a Gift in your Will

Making a gift to a charity in your will is a very special token of expressing the values and interests you have held dear during your life.

By leaving a gift to Aid to the Church in Need in your Will, you will be leaving a legacy of faith to help the suffering Church around the world and to help keep the light of Christ’s love alight for all generations to come.

ACN and ‘Your Catholic Legacy’ campaign

Your Catholic Legacy is a consortium of over twenty charities, dedicated to raising the profile of charitable bequests in Wills for Catholic charities.

Whether helping homeless and marginalised people, prisoners, seafarers, children with disabilities and low income families here in the UK or fighting global poverty and injustice and sharing God’s love with communities around the world, our organisations provide vital services to some of the poorest and most vulnerable members of society.

As Catholic charities we rely almost entirely on the support of the Catholic community to carry out our work. Our inspiration comes from the Gospel, Catholic teaching and the people who need our help; as well from our wonderful supporters, whose faith, compassion and commitment make our work possible.

Each charity in Your Catholic Legacy has decades of experience and expertise in its own field of work. Together, our shared mission is to put faith into action and demonstrate the transforming power of God’s love.

Who we are? The consortium consists of the following Catholic charities:

  • Ace of Clubs
  • Aid to the Church in Need
  • Apostleship of the Sea
  • Archdiocese of Southwark
  • Brentwood Catholic Children’s Society
  • CAFOD

What brought us all together?

Your Catholic Legacy aims to encourage more Catholics to make a Will and to leave a gift to the Catholic causes they have supported during their lifetime, including Aid to the Church in Need, so that the life and work of the Catholic Church may continue to flourish and be responsive to the needs of the poor, the marginalised and the vulnerable in the UK and in other countries.
