Make a Bequest

A Bequest to the Fund Back
„I would like to help others experience the same transformation which the Fund sparked in me.”

A Bequest to the Fund

Making a will is always an important moment in one’s life – a time to reflect on what sort of world one will leave behind. It is an opportunity to decide what one’s legacy will be. It is a chance to make a lasting and meaningful impact, to plant a seed that grows and bears fruit as time goes by.

If you share our belief that the future of society as a whole is ultimately determined by the achievements of the most gifted of its members, then we encourage you to include the Polish Children’s Fund as a beneficiary of your will. All the money you choose to bequeath to us will be used to organise stimulating activities for young people that provide them with skills and knowledge as well as the opportunity to develop long-lasting friendships. We will tell our beneficiaries about your contribution so that they are aware that they owe to you a debt of gratitude and that the chance they have been given is also due to your generosity.

Our actions can transform the world because we change the lives of the young people who will shape its future. This gives us hope for a better world – a hope that is worth nurturing when making a will.

If you would like to name the Polish Children’s Fund as a beneficiary of your will, please get in touch: agnieszka.imbierowicz@fundusz.org

How to Make a Will?

Writing a will is a legal transaction that cannot be concluded by proxy.

It is by far the safest and most efficient when the document in question is drawn up as a notarial will:

  • Notarial activities performed by a notary are regarded as official documents. It is comparatively difficult to contest such a will.
  • A notary is a legal professional who can explain all the intricacies of making a will and suggest the best way to write it so that the intentions of the testator can be fulfilled in their entirety

Holographic wills:

  • Their validity is contingent on being dated, signed, and handwritten in their entirety by the testator
  • The signature on the document must be legible and complete (full first and last name)
  • A will is considered invalid if it was made in a state that precludes conscious or free decision-making and expression of intent. It is also considered invalid if it is made under the influence of a threat or a misconception
