stories of generosity

We love hearing from our supporters and finding out what inspires them about Tearfund’s work. Here are some reasons why supporters have chosen to include a gift to Tearfund in their will and some stories of those whose generosity means lives will be changed for generations to come.

‘I have included Tearfund in my will because you do such tremendous work around the world in Jesus’ name.’

‘Have made Tearfund the main recipient of the 10 per cent I have left to charities — I consider my money will best show God’s love to the needy by your work.’

‘I have included a gift to Tearfund because you support the whole person — spiritual, physical and emotional, exemplifying Jesus’ life.’

If you’re thinking of including Tearfund in your will – or have already done so – we’d love to hear what inspired you. If you’d like to share your story here to inspire other supporters to do the same please do get in touch.
