Leave a gift in your will

Imagine a future where homelessness and poverty are things of the past, where everyone has a home and the support around them to maintain it, and no-one is facing a night on the streets.

Our vision is a future of a fairer society where vulnerable people find stability, and the most excluded are included.

By leaving a gift in your will you can help us make this a reality.

Why leave a legacy to Porchlight?

At Porchlight we take care of people who, for whatever reason, no longer have the home and the family that so many of us take for granted. We welcome them into our community of homeless people, staff and volunteers, supported by all our caring donors.  When someone becomes homeless and makes a call to us, we start the process of helping them out of their situation and on to a better future.

But the need is growing. More and more people are finding themselves with a home or facing homelessness. We must make sure we are there for future generations – your legacy will help ensure this.

How we can help

Leaving a legacy to Porchlight is an especially thoughtful thing to do –it needn’t be complicated. We recognise that the decision to leave a gift in your will is a personal matter and usually takes time and careful consideration. We will always respect your privacy and we recognise that friends and family will always come first. If you choose to leave us a gift in your will we would love to know, but there is no obligation for you to inform us.
