Leave a gift in your will

Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will is one of the most valuable and meaningful ways you can help local wildlife. There are a number ways you can support us and you can choose which type of gift is most appropriate. Please find below the different types of gift you could leave in your will: -

• A share of your estate
You may choose to leave whatever is left over once all your other legacies have been made and all costs met. You may wish to specify fractions or percentages of your estate or the residue (balance left) after other gifts and commitments have been made.

• A sum of money
This is when you choose to leave a specific sum of money to a person, organisation or charity. Please remember that inflation may impact on the value of this legacy.

• A specific gift
When you wish to leave a specific item such as a painting, books, jewellery, an area of land, stocks and shares, or property.

Remembering wildlife in your Will

From protecting ancient woodland to wildflower meadows, or the wonderful marine life in our seas, every gift, large or small, can make a real difference.

If you need to make a Will we would recommend that you talk to a professional will writer e.g. a solicitor or advocate in order to ensure your will is legally correct and that all your wishes are clear.

Finding someone to write your will is something that we may be able to help you with, as in some areas solicitors/professional will writers are able to offer a discount on will writing to members of The Wildlife Trusts - particularly during Will for Wildlife Week.

If you have already made a Will and would like to add a gift in your will to your local Wildlife Trust, your professional will writer can add your request to your existing Will – this is known as a Codicil. If you would like a form please let us know and we will send you one.
