Using your will for the greater good

Many people wish to do good beyond their own lifetime and include a charitable organisation such as the Bethel Foundation in their will in order to help disadvantaged people.

A will for Bethel

Give the gift of quality of life, opportunities and care for a long time to come. We are aware of the full extent of our responsibility as beneficiary and will take care of your necessary affairs attentively with respect for your wishes. We are happy to organise

  • grave maintenance
  • house clearances
  • property sales

Since the Bethel Foundation is a charitable organisation, it is exempt from paying inheritance tax. This means that every bequest in your will benefits the disabled people at Bethel, without restriction.

Pastor Ulrich Pohl
It is a good thing to give helping hands what your own hands have worked for but can no longer use. This gives hope and courage to people who are unable to cope with life's long journey alone.
Pastor Ulrich Pohl | Chairman of the Board, v. Bodelschwinghsche Stiftungen Bethel
