Instant inheritance check


With part of an inheritance or a legacy to Terre des hommes, you can lastingly support the future of some of the world’s most vulnerable children. We can assist you in your project and guarantee you complete discretion.

You can also order our free guide with information about estate planning (only available in German and French) or you can define your actual family situation with the free-of-charge tool of our partner  Moribono here below.

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.

 - we guarantee that your data will be treated confidentially.

 - your donation is exempt from inheritance and gift tax in nearly all Swiss cantons.



“The work of Terre des hommes is not only justified, effective and invaluable; it is exemplary in its human dimension. That is why it needs your help. It is ‘your’ help that supports it financially. And it is ‘our’ children who benefit from it.”

Xavier Colin, Journalist and Member of the Foundation Council since June 9th, 2017
