Gifts That Don’t Cost You Anything Now

For over 25 years, Sudan Relief Fund has worked each and every day to bring relief to the war-torn population of South Sudan and the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. This lifesaving work is supported in a truly special way by those who include Sudan Relief Fund in their wills or estate plans.

These are the members of the Sudan Relief Fund Legacy Society, and we invite you to join them. Legacy Society members represent the foundational pillars of our work – a core group who ensures Sudan Relief Fund can remain strong in its mission to bring help and hope to South Sudan.

You can make an impact with just your signature. By choosing to leave a gift in your will or trust, you are immediately welcomed into the Sudan Relief Fund Legacy Society. And you can be assured your gift is used to help foster hope in a region stricken with suffering.

As a Legacy Society member, you will receive regular private updates from Sudan Relief Fund  leadership and invitations to special events.

These gifts cost you nothing during your lifetime, yet give you the chance to make a significant impact for peace, hunger relief, and education in South Sudan.

Included below are two forms which may be of assistance when you choose to become a Legacy Society member by including Sudan Relief Fund in your will or trust. The Letter of Intent clarifies the scope of your gift, and if you wish to specify a particular area where you would like your funds to be used. Filling out the Letter of Intent and sending it to Sudan Relief Fund helps us accurately plan for future projects to make sure your impact is maximized.

The sample Bequest Letter is a tool that provides your attorney with your intention to include Sudan Relief Fund in your will or trust. It also contains the necessary Tax ID information should  you choose to name Sudan Relief Fund as a beneficiary of one of your financial accounts, such as a retirement or brokerage fund. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about leaving a legacy gift.

If you or your advisers have questions as you consider this option, or if you have already decided to name Sudan Relief Fund in your will, please reach out to Matt Smith at to make us aware, so we can include you as a Legacy Society member.
