Add a Bequest to your Will
A Lasting Legacy. Leaving a gift in your Will to Lesedi will ensure that we can continue to educate, nurture and give hope to thousands of children in the future.
As a charity with no government support, we must plan into the long term. Leaving a legacy, whatever the size, allows us to invest in much needed projects and helps secure Lesedi’s future for many generations to come. We can assure you it would be a most worthwhile legacy!
Leaving a gift in your Will is a very personal and important decision and we are very happy to offer support and guidance, giving you peace of mind that your wishes will be followed. We strongly recommend that you consult your estate planner, solicitor or attorney to get appropriate tax advice.

In the United States, assuming you wish to receive the tax benefits of giving to a US 501(c)(3), then your bequest should go to Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, to support the Lesedi Schools & Clinic Fund.
