Since its launch in 2009, the service has raised £tens of millions for charities

London, 20th March 2014: World Cancer Research Fund UK, Action for Children and Care for the Wild have all joined The Goodwill Partnership in order to offer solicitor-provided wills to their own supporters and volunteers.

The will-writing service will allow each charity’s supporters and volunteers to leave a legacy bequest if they so desire. In return The Goodwill Partnership will provide each charity with a monthly report of legacy donations made, as well as the monetary value of the donation (where permitted by the donor).

The service will therefore let each charity monitor legacy donations more effectively as well as plan ahead with more financial accuracy.

The new partnerships follow recent alliances by The Goodwill Partnership with other charities including Macmillan Cancer Support who recently announced record results for legacy will-writing as a result of the partnership.

Mark Jackson, Director of The Goodwill Partnership, says: “Legacies are a vital part of fundraising and The Goodwill Partnership offers charities a means of offering home visit will-writing services to their members at low cost. Since its launch in 2009, the service has raised £tens of millions for charities and we are now delighted to welcome World Cancer Research Fund UK, Action for Children and Care for the Wild to The Goodwill Partnership.”

World Cancer Research Fund UK

World Cancer Research Fund UK (WCRF International) leads and unifies a global network of cancer charities dedicated to the prevention and control of cancer by means of healthy food and nutrition, physical activity and body weight. With the belief that greater impact can be achieved when allied organisations work together, WCRF International operates to ensure that each of its charities is in a stronger position than if it were operating in isolation.

Action for Children campaigns for children, young people and families who face incredibly difficult situations. A key aim is to ensure that the most vulnerable and neglected children are a priority for policy makers. The charity’s vision is to help create a world where all children and young people have a sense of belonging and are loved and valued - a world where they can break through injustice, deprivation and inequality to fulfill their potential, shape their own destiny and experience the joy of life.
