Leave a bequest

Help us carry on the great work that you have supported during your lifetime.

To make sure that your Will is properly drawn up, valid, enforceable and that your wishes will be carried out exactly as you intended, it is best to instruct a solicitor.

If you already have a Will, you can still leave a bequest to World Animal Protection by simply adding a codicil to it. This way you can include a gift to support World Animal Protection’s work, ensure the other provisions in your Will remain untouched, and you won’t have to pay for your Will to be completely re-written. 

Types of gift

If you have decided to include a gift for World Animal Protection in your Will, we thank you so very much. You will need to choose the type of gift that is right for your legacy:

  • Residual gift. Your legacy will be a percentage of the net value of your estate after all debts and gifts to your family have been paid. This gift is highly valued. You will not need to put a value on it, just a percentage because it keeps pace with inflation.
  • Pecuniary gift. Your legacy is a specified sum of money.
  • Specific gift. Your legacy includes a specific item, for example, a property or shares.
