What is a joint and several will?

The solidarity will of the CARF Foundation is a very special and personal way of helping the Church to form diocesan priests, seminarians and religious from countries with scarce resources, contributing to their support and studies for their integral formation.

This involves including a charitable cause in your will, either by designating one or more non-profit institutions or NGOs as heirs to all your assets or by leaving a portion with a specific bequest.

When you decide to convert your will in a will of solidarity, which includes the CARF Foundation, you are permanently supporting our commitment to continue forming future generations of priests.

Thanks to your testament of solidarity, your generosity keeps alive the effort to achieve a better world for Christians and non-believers alike, for the priest is no respecter of persons or creeds when it comes to helping another human being in any part of the world. Your life and legacy will be perpetual.
