Meet our community of supporters
When you include a bequest in your Will to Oxfam, you join a community of our most loyal and valued supporters. People like Fiona (pictured above), Ewan and Sue.
“Making a difference in ways that improves people’s lives and the health of the planet is central to who I am.
“By including Oxfam in my Will, I felt centred. I felt at one with my core values, knowing that a proportion of the assets I had accumulated over a lifetime would be used for good. That is really important to me.
“I need to know that what I do aligns with who I am and what I believe in. By securing a bequest to Oxfam, I acted in accordance with my values, and that brought harmony and peace.”

“I can’t remember why I first became involved with Oxfam, but I know why I’m still interested.
“Because Oxfam covers the breadth of my interests, it appeals to me. I like the way they work in partnerships with local people to campaign for the environment, clean water, health or humanitarian issues — a bit of what they do, is a bit of what I’m passionate about!
“And Oxfam aligns with my values – that’s important to me too.
“Because of changing life circumstances, I’ve decided it’s time to update my Will and I plan to include a gift to Oxfam. I want to use my funds to practical ends, and I have confidence that Oxfam will be there to do that for me.”
Read Ewan’s story.
“I was a teacher for several years, so I know how vital it is to create a healthier future for our children.
“There’s so much suffering in this world. You just need to pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV to see it. But I’ve been supporting Oxfam for a long time now and I’ve seen the difference they’ve been able to make over the years. And I trust that they’ll carry on doing a great job in the future.
“I can only give so much at the moment because I also need to live, but when I’m no longer here, I won’t need the money I’ve accumulated. We all have the power to do good by contributing our time and money — but a bequest can be larger. And I believe that if everyone gave just a small percentage in their Will, the world would be a very different place.
“It means a great deal to me to know that through my Will, in some far corner of the world, I can make a difference. It feels wonderful to be able to send money into the future.”
