Leaving a gift in your will

Working every day for a safer world without mines, gifts in wills directly improve the lives of people in unsure environments. Please consider leaving a legacy to support our important humanitarian work on the long run.

Contributing to a better future with your will

-       Big or small, gifts in wills have a huge impact on the lives of people in post-conflict environments.
-       Next to your loved ones, you might want to mention FSD in your will in order to support us in our efforts for a secure world for all.
-       Writing a will creates a feeling of relief and satisfaction since your legacy becomes a lasting tribute.
-       Your donation is exempt from inheritance tax: FSD is recognized as a public utility.

Together, we can assure a better life for people endangered by the daily risks related to landmines, unexploded ordnance and environmental pollution.

Leave a testament that will make a change

From the formation of FSD in 1997 until now, we have cleared over 75 square kilometres of land – three times the city of Basel – from mines and explosive hazards in remote areas where many other organizations are absent. Furthermore, we have assisted mine victims and offered risk-education to more than two million people in order to increase their security by raising awareness.  

Acknowledging these efforts by leaving a legacy in your will is easily done and makes a crucial contribution to the work of our organisation. With your support we can continue our important engagement in mine action.

How to mention FSD in your last will?

There are a number of ways in which you can assist FSD in your last will:

-       Will: Your relatives are legally entitled to a part of your heritage. You are free to dispose of the remaining part, for example by registering FSD as an heir.
-       Legacy: With a legacy, you give a specific amount of money or an object (e.g. a building) to FSD. In the case of a legacy, the portion reserved for your relatives is protected.
-       In the case of both the will and the legacy, every gift will directly support those people affected by armed conflict and reduce their risk of being exposed to deadly landmines and other security risks.

“I was playing outside with some friends when one of them picked up a piece of metal lying on the floor. Suddenly there was an explosion. We all fell to the ground. I felt like I had been hit in the back. ” Sanita, 11 years old. 

Like Sanita, many children walk in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance on a daily basis. Since 1997, FSD has worked tirelessly to locate and eliminate these dangerous legacies of war around the world, and to prevent accidents through awareness campaigns. FSD also remediated sites polluted by toxic waste, and supports peace and development in conflict-affected countries.

Together, we can act. Every donation, no matter how small, helps shape a safer future for those who have already suffered so much.
