Our promise

A legacy to Oxfam is a promise of a better future for the communities we support. A promise that means we can help to shape a fairer world, and continue our work to fight to end poverty and injustice. In return, here is our promise to you.

  • Your family and friends are important. We will always understand that everyone you hold dear comes first.
  • Your privacy is paramount. We appreciate that your will is personal to you.
  • Your decision is yours alone. We will always respect your need to carefully consider leaving a legacy - in your own time.
  • Every single penny you give will help changes lives. We will spend your money wisely - where it will have the most impact.
  • We care. We will handle your legacy gift with the utmost sensitivity and respect.
  • We're discreet. You don't have to tell us if you leave a gift to Oxfam, but if you do, it will help us to plan future work, and we will keep your decision completely confidential.
  • We are always here. If there is anything you want to know about your legacy, or the communities you are helping to support, please get in touch. Email Nathaniel Micklem at or give him a ring on 0300 200 1331.
