Why Claire wants to leave a parting gift
With a gift in your Will you can help more people live in peace and lead a full life. This was at the forefront of Claire’s thinking when deciding to leave a legacy to Cord.
“When I’m no longer on this earth and can’t support Cord, I can leave a last parting gift.”
Claire was introduced to Cord’s work when she was a missionary in Southeast Asia in the early 1980s.
“I like supporting Cord because it’s small, spends money wisely and is specific in where it works. I believe in peacebuilding work – bringing people from different political and ethnic groups together. I like the projects, how they empower people through things like setting up small businesses and helping them rise out of poverty.”
Claire wants to help more people find peace and freedom, long after her life:
“I’d encourage other Cord supporters to consider leaving a gift to Cord in their will because it can leave something that will last, something that will go on working after they’re not here.”
