Inheritance and legacies
Set a sign!
Would you like to enable disadvantaged people in poorer countries to live in dignity and with better opportunities for the future? And express that the fellowship of the worldwide church is an important concern to you? Mission 21 is engaged in 20 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America within the framework of sustainable development cooperation as well as emergency aid and reconstruction for peacebuilding, education, health, food sovereignty and income generation.
This is what your estate can do
There are several ways to support the activities of Mission 21 and its partner churches, for example through a donation in the event of death, a birthday or a wedding or through donations in kind such as securities and real estate. With a legacy or inheritance, you secure our project work in the long term and sustainably. In this way, you can do good far beyond your time. For example, a bequest enables the following:
A girl finally receives an education. Because new schools are being built.
A farmer in Bolivia is trained in sustainable agriculture and thus ensures the survival of his family.
In Malaysia, theologians are trained in interfaith and interethnic dialogue and act as peacemakers.
Record your last will and testament!
It is important that you determine in good time what should happen to your estate after your death. Our publications "Passing on - continuing to make an impact: Your Legacy to the Future" and "My Last Wishes" will help you plan.
The brochure "Passing on - continuing to make an impact: Your Legacy to the Future" gives an overview of the current and future inheritance law situation and shows examples of how a will can look. "My Last Wishes" offers a checklist for relatives on what to consider and take care of after a death. Both publications can be ordered free of charge from Mission 21 or downloaded as PDFs:
