We find out why some of our generous members are leaving legacies

Charles told us of his decision to leave a legacy to the Alliance in 2012. Here, he has kindly shared why he has chosen to support the work in this significant way:

"I worked for the Evangelical Alliance from 1998 to 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed my time serving God there. I saw first-hand that the Evangelical Alliance brings together the full range of evangelical churches and helps each end of the spectrum understand one another better. It has a high profile and speaks into the media, so that people are hearing the Christian viewpoint on important issues. And they do this with a balanced approach, getting the message across to the right people who make the decisions. The Evangelical Alliance needs to continue to have this role. "I have included the Evangelical Alliance in my will, therefore, because I whole-heartedly believe in the work they are doing and see the vital importance of it. It also has a tax benefit. I think this is important as I want to steward well the money God has blessed me with, so that it will have a greater effect."

Heather Rayner kindly shares why she decided to include the Evangelical Alliance in her will:

"I see leaving a legacy as a way of giving at another stage of life, leaving a portion of the many gifts that I have received and want to share with others. “When it came to making our wills, my husband Tim and I made provision for our families first, but we also wanted to know that a part of our estate was separated out for God’s work. We recognise that legacies are an important part of ensuring that the vital ongoing work of some charities is well-funded long into the future. “We are happy to share with others that we’ve left a legacy to help carry on the Evangelical Alliance’s work long after our lifetimes, promoting values that are important to us. I’m also pleased that the Evangelical Alliance know this and can continue to keep me updated with their plans for the future as a result. “I believe most Christians would be happy to consider including a legacy in their will for causes they love, and it’s probably something we should talk about more and share with one another."
