Humanity is at its best when we all work together.

At Cuso International, we believe in the power of people. The power of selfless volunteers and trail-blazing alumni, determined to change the world. The power of unwavering partners, driven to make a lasting difference for themselves and their communities. The power of compassionate donors, empowered by their kindness to forge extraordinary change.

You can create change that is even more powerful. You can do so by leaving a charitable bequest – but we prefer to call it a legacy gift, because it shapes a deep-rooted legacy of equality, justice, and human potential.

We hope that the following is of use to you in considering a gift to Cuso International in your Will.

“When we first started thinking about our Will, we had strong personal connections with many organizations. We chose Cuso International partly because of our deep personal experience, but also because of the approach they take to their work.

The values that we felt were exhibited back when we were volunteers in Botswana, are still part of Cuso International today; each volunteer is there to ‘hold the ladder’ while the partner can climb up to create the lives they want, with the dignity they deserve.”

– Hulene and Michael
