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.

Gifts in Celebration
A celebration that really counts:
A special birthday, anniversary or landmark occasion deserves a special celebration. The Fund can help you mark these occasions with a gift that will bring joy to those who are otherwise forgotten.
By either donating in honour of someone else, or asking friends and family to donate as a gift to you, the Fund can help your celebration make a lasting impact. We can provide examples of the difference a gift could make, and even link some gifts to specific projects.
We can help you decide what mechanism to use to give or ask people to give. We can provide pictures and stories to bring your gift alive and send thank you letters, donation certificates and even unique Fund gifts in recognition of your and your donors’ generosity.

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!
