Donations by will

You can designate a part of your assets to be passed on to Vapaa Liikkuvuus ry (Free Movement). We are thankful to receive any cash donations, small or large. However, we cannot accept estates or other types of donations that involve tax duties. Donations by will be directed to general support for migrants, action taken for freedom of movement, or a target of your choice. If you want to designate your donation to a specific target, please contact us when you are drawing up your testament. That way, we can make sure that your donation will be used according to your wishes.

How to draw up a testament?

A testament is a document determining to whom and how you want your property to be distributed after you die. If you have not drawn up a testament, your property will be distributed according to the order of succession or, if you do not have any direct descendants, your property will be abandoned to the state. If you have direct descendants, they are always entitled to a lawful share. It means that, regardless of a testament, they are entitled to half of the value of the share they would have inherited without the testament. By drawing up a testament, you can decide what happens to your assets after your death.

You can draw up a valid testament by yourself. The testament needs to include the date of signing, and you need two qualified witnesses to simultaneously attest to you signing the document. However, to ensure that the testament is legally binding and fulfills all the formal requirements, it is advisable to consult a lawyer. Legal affairs offices and law offices can help you with drawing up a testament.

How do we use your donations?

Free Movement (Vapaa Liikkuvuus ry) association helps migrants who have landed in a weak position, such as asylum seekers, undocumented and roma migrants. We use the donations either directly for e.g. health care fees, visas and residence permits, travel costs, as well as for food aid, or to create campaigns for migrants’ rights.

If you want to support our work in other ways, you can join Free Movement Network’s activities for migrant’s rights.
