LEAVE A LEGACY FOR ANIMALS
Why Leave A Legacy For Animals?
By making a legally-binding will, you can leave a legacy which helps animals for years to come.
If you pass away without a will and without living relatives recognised in law, your inheritance would pass to the state. Not having a will in place could also cause distress for your loved ones at an already difficult time in their lives.
Leaving a gift to animals will give you the assurance that your legacy benefits those who you have chosen and that animals have a brighter future ahead of them.
How To Leave A Legacy
If you’d like to leave a legacy, you can easily do so by naming us in your will, as the beneficiary of:
- a specific monetary amount;
- a stated percentage of your estate’s property;
- or a stated percentage of your residuary estate.
If you have a solicitor already, they will be able to advise you and act according to your wishes.
Please ask them to name us as follows:
Animal Equality (charity reg no. 1168309, England & Wales)
Address: 124 City Road, EC1V 2NX, London, UK
Contact details: [email protected] or 0207 993 5348
If you haven’t made a will before and aren’t sure where to start, there are various organisations – unaffiliated with Animal Equality – that offer advice*.
We’ve also created a specific Animal Equality account with FreeWills, should you decide that this is the best route for you. With FreeWills’ online service, you can make a free, legally-binding will in as little as 15 minutes. Each will is checked by legal experts and your will can be updated quickly and easily for free. (Additional optional services, such as having the will printed and bound and sent by post, do incur a charge). There’s no obligation to leave a gift to us, but we do hope you do so to enable us to continue our important work.
We’d love it if you would let us know if you decide to put Animal Equality in your will, so we can thank you properly. It means so much to us, but even more to the animals you would be saving.
Thank you so much!
