The difference your legacy will make

Today, and in the years to come, lives and communities across the world will be changed for the better. Men and women will learn they have all they need to step into their God-given potential. They will know that the answer to poverty lies within themselves, and with that knowledge they can be released from poverty for good.

We are closer than ever to ending extreme poverty and your legacy gift could make all the difference. Every penny of your legacy gift will be invested wisely so that we can best serve wherever the need is greatest around the world.
