The pandemic threatens vulnerable families.



Your last gift will be the greatest


Thinking about your estate means deciding what you will leave to your loved ones and to the causes you hold dear after your death. A will allows you to formalise your last wishes and clearly set out how to distribute your assets. It is a way of perpetuating your wishes and conveying your values. By nominating Terre des hommes as your heir or beneficiary, you are choosing to support the future of the most vulnerable children now and for generations to come. We will assist you with your plans and guarantee discretion and confidentiality.


If you would like more information about the assets you can bequeath, who can inherit them or how you can write your will and support Terre des hommes, we invite you to download our brochure. You will also find a contact form that you can send us if you would like more information or would like to meet us.

If you decide to leave an inheritance or bequest to Terre des hommes in your will, we are committed to use the funds entrusted to us in accordance with the vision and values of Terre des hommes for children in need and guarantee that your data will be treated confidentially.

“On several occasions I had the opportunity to experience how many children of this world live in poverty, without any chance of a worthy future. With a legacy I would like to make a contribution beyond my death to alleviate the misery of some of them.”

Dora Mastria, Tdh legator and member of the Volunteer Group of Basel
