Build Your Legacy

Helen Keller overcame tremendous obstacles and helped millions of others do the same. You can join her.

Though she lost her sight and hearing as a young child, Helen learned to communicate, thanks to the help from her gifted teacher. Helen went on to break barriers. An author and advocate, she traveled the world to give hope to people facing disabilities, poverty and other inequities. Helen co-founded Helen Keller Intl to ensure that no one is deprived of the opportunity to live a healthy life and reach their true potential.  

Helen’s legacy is at work today, helping millions of children and families around the world.  

Making a legacy gift is one of the most impactful things you can do for the future.
