Leaving a gift that will live on after you
A bequest is a gift left in a Will. Most bequests are made by ordinary people who want to make a positive difference after they’re gone.
Why leave a gift to Bible Society?
By making a gift to Bible Society in your Will, you’ll be supporting the Bible cause after you’re gone, ensuring that the work of making the Bible accessible to everyone will continue for future generations. Your gift will help transform lives such as this Haitian mother and her child (pictured) and many others. Scroll down to read about more people whose lives have already been transformed.

Your lasting legacy will bring the Bible to people like Kem from Nepal.
When Kem was unable to find a job, he traveled to the Gulf States and found a job as a night watchman. But increasingly Kem found himself feeling trapped and alone. He grew weaker and weaker.
One day, someone gave Kem a New Testament in Nepali. Kem read the New Testament over and over again till one night he gave his life to Jesus. Within a week, all of his physical symptoms were healed. Now he looks constantly to the Bible for his hope and strength.
