Leave a
legacy of a lifetime

Leave a legacy

A gift in your Will, no matter how small, can give some of the world's most vulnerable children a future they would otherwise be denied.

Leaving a gift to a charity is a poignant means of ensuring the values that are dear to you in life continue to be upheld in your name even after you pass away.

When you choose to leave that gift to Toybox, you choose to bring love and hope to children who, through no fault of their own, are born into a life of cruelty and injustice. Of course, when it comes to writing or updating a Will, your family and loved ones must come first. But when you include a gift to Toybox, you can also help children who may not have any loved ones at all.

Our guide provides answers to questions you may have about this most powerful way to make a difference. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. I'll be delighted to speak with you.

Ways to give

Three ways to give

When it comes to writing your Will it's not enough to think about who you want to benefit, you also need to consider how you would like them to benefit too.


A residuary gift

is a share of your total estate after all other payments (such as debts, tax and administrative expenses) have been deducted. Since this type of legacy is a percentage of your estate, it will keep its value over time.


A pecuniary gift

is a fixed amount of money that you leave in your Will. It is a good idea to review pecuniary gifts regularly, as their face value can be reduced by inflation and turn out to be worth less than you had initially planned.


A specific gift

is the name given to a particular item of value that you chose to bequeath - examples of this type of gift are property, personal possessions or shares.

How our legacy work changes lives


Birth Registration • Kenya • 2023

Telvoh has always spent his days working with his mum on the street. Until recently, he never had an official identity as his mother had lost her ID card, meaning she was unable to register him. Thankfully, they met PKL, who were able to support them through the processes to get Telvoh his birth certificate. Now he officially exists!

Emergency Response • India • 2021

For families like 11-year-old Sahana’s, the pandemic meant no opportunity for work and no income. Street families and migrants were also left out of government ration distributions. Emergency food, hygiene kits, and educational materials offered a vital lifeline to many. Newly installed handwashing stations in slum communities meant street children could keep themselves clean and safe.

Education • Nepal • 2021

Poverty pushed 15-year-old Chimini out of school and onto the streets to work to support her family. Her determination to learn led her to the learning centre run by our partner in Nepal. Here, the team encouraged her mother to re-enrol her into school and, when the pandemic hit, supported her with educational supplies so could continue her studies at home.
