Planned giving

By including Sightsavers in your will, you could change the future for generations of people in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Leaving a gift to Sightsavers in your will can be a lot easier than you think, and it will have a huge impact on so many people’s lives.

You could help to provide sight-saving cataract operations or medication to protect an entire community against painful, debilitating diseases that cause blindness.

Sightsavers is already well on the way to eliminating the painful and treatable disease trachoma, and you’re vital to helping us achieve it. Our big plans rely a lot on the generosity of people like you leaving a legacy to Sightsavers.

A will is the only way of ensuring your relatives are provided for in the way you wish after your death. It also enables you to leave money or property to other causes you are passionate about.

After you’ve taken care of your loved ones in your will, we’d be very grateful if you’d consider including Sightsavers too.  Your support can be truly life-changing.
