How You Can Help

Remembering the Forgotten

Did you know that you can give 1% of your Will to care for the Forgotten?

Leaving a legacy to the Fund is a simple and flexible way of supporting the future works of the Order of Malta. It only takes a few minutes to organise a gift in your Will but its effects on the lives of Forgotten people will outlast a lifetime.

The Fund is grateful to a member of the Australian Association who has helped the work of the Order grow and thrive by leaving a legacy to the Fund in his will. As a keen supporter of the works of the Order both in his own country and globally, the support that the Fund has received as a result of his decision will ensure that future works of the Order live on.

Consider remembering the Forgotten in your Will today. Large or small, legacies to the Fund transform lives.

Contact Emily van Lier for more information.

Unforgettable Gifts

Hunting for a meaningful Christmas or birthday present? Why not give an Unforgettable Gift: a donation in support of the Order’s works with forgotten people around the world.

A month of dog therapy for a disabled person in Lithuania

Gift recipients will receive a personalised, hand-written thank you card, where they can read about the tangible difference their gift will make to people facing hunger, sickness and isolation.

Simply make your donation, and email us to let us know where you would like us to send a thank you card, and whether you would like to include a personal message.

Want to make a larger gift, or invite donations in place of presents yourself?

We can arrange for gifts to be directed to the issues closest to your heart, help set up JustGiving fundraising pages, and provide meaningful tokens as a thank-you to gift-givers and recipients.

This is Alina.

Every year since she was five, she has sent out beautiful party invitations, welcoming family and friends to celebrate with her, and directing them to a JustGiving page where they can donate in support of the Holy Family Hospital in Bethlehem instead of buying her a present.  She loves supporting the hospital because it cares for babies and new mothers in the hardest circumstances, wherever they come from.

Her kindness year-in, year-out has raised almost £9,000 to help it in its lifesaving work, leading the hospital to write to Alina personally to thank her for thinking of those less fortunate.  She also sends a thank-you letter to each of her school friends and family who donates, sharing information about the cause.  Her generosity has made such a difference, both in Bethlehem, and in inspiring us at the Fund. Thank you Alina!
