Gifts in Wills
A Lasting Legacy
"But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand." 1 Chronicles 29:14
Why leave a gift in your will to Langham Partnership?
Gifts in wills are among the most significant ways of ensuring Langham’s work not only continues but grows for generations to come. By remembering Langham when you make your will, you’ll enable people in the future to experience the teaching of the Bible for themselves.
For example, generous donations have aided our Scholar Programme, where we have over 500 Langham Scholars from around the world and more than 97 currently studying for their doctorates.
Recent research has shown that 7,733 more students will be taught during 25-year careers when a Majority World teacher becomes a Langham Scholar*. A gift in your will could transform thousands of lives by strengthening the maturity and impact of God’s people around the world. That is a true legacy.

How to Leave a Gift in Your Will
1. Think about what you have – your estate and assets – and who you’d like to be your executor.
2. Choose who you will remember in your will, including family, friends and the causes you care about, like Langham.
3. Decide who will write your will. We strongly suggest using a solicitor to make sure everything is legal and valid.
If you already have a will and wish to add Langham as one of your beneficiaries, ask a solicitor to help you complete a codicil and then keep it safe with your will. You can download an example Codicil form here.
