Making a Will or updating your existing Will is the only way to ensure that those you love will be looked after and that your legacy benefits the people and causes that you really care about.
Leaving a legacy to IWCT is an incredibly generous gesture and one which makes such an impact on succeeding in our animal welfare campaigns.
It was thanks to a legacy that we were able to purchase the land where the new Treatment Centre has been built.
By deciding to remember IWCT in your Will, you will help us to continue our work rescuing and rehabilitating dogs, reducing cruelty to animals and conserving endangered species. Thanks to you we will be there to rescue and protect animals from cruelty, not just today but forever.
If you’d like to discuss this with us in more detail please contact us.
Many people make a Will and assume that is all that is required. However, circumstances can change and so it is always advisable to take a fresh look at your Will every few years.
If you want to avoid rewriting your Will completely you can also add a codicil, which would enable you to include a new beneficiary, ensuring that the other provisions remain untouched.
There are three main gifts that you can leave in your Will.
Below is the suggested wording needed if you wish to include IWCT in your Will.
Many people choose this type of gift as it is the most helpful, allowing us to use your gift wherever the need is greatest for the animals at the time it is received. An unrestricted gift can be residuary or pecuniary and the following wording is suggested:
“I give the sum of £_______(or specify % of estate) to the International Wildlife Coalition Trust, 141A High St, Edenbridge, Kent TN8 5AX (registered charity number 1035381) for its general purposes.”
You can also specify how or where you’d like your gift to be used by leaving a restricted gift. If you wish to leave a restricted gift, please contact us to discuss the area that you’d like to support. For a restricted gift the following wording is suggested:
“I give the sum of £________(or specify % of estate) to the International Wildlife Coalition Trust, 141A High St, Edenbridge, Kent TN8 5AX (registered charity number 1035381) for its general purpose and I express the wish, but without creating any binding trust that this legacy be used in the (specify) areas.
The International Wildlife Coalition Trust (IWCT) is one of the world’s leading conservation organisations and is a constant opponent to animal cruelty.
Leaving a gift to IWCT will mean that we are able to consider:
