Why we are remembering Amnesty in our wills

    “I recognize how effective Amnesty’s work is, and want it to continue. I can think of no better way of ensuring justice and dignity for future generations.”

    - Margaret John (Amnesty International member since 1975)

     

    “I know that my loved ones, especially my children, will be taken care of. I also know that the world is much bigger than our small family, and it needs a strong independent voice to deal with the atrocities that happen, and to remind us that we can’t stay silent, we must act. Leaving a gift in my will to Amnesty is my small way of ensuring that we continue to do just that.”

    - Lee Seymour (with Amnesty International since 2005)

     

    “I’m leaving a gift in my will to Amnesty International so the children of the world will know freedom and dignity.”

    - Simon Trevelyan (with Amnesty International since 1990)

     

    “I have confidence that AI will be a financially responsible and effective human rights organization long into the future--and because this way my commitment to human rights can be more than life-long.”

    - Nancy Kingsbury  (Amnesty International member for more than 20 years.)  

     
     
    “By including Amnesty in our wills, we get to continue our commitment to AI’s important work on human rights and help to secure its legacy.”

    - Bill Gilsdorf  (Amnesty International member since the eighties.)

     
    “There is something very satisfying about being in a position to make a final statement that has real meaning for me.”

    - Michael Wilkshire (Active member of Amnesty International since 1981.)
