Why Remember a Charity Week is the perfect time to think about your legacy for animals

Remember a charity in your will and support IFAW's work for animals

Today marks the start of this year’s Remember a Charity week, in which over 180 charities join together to raise the profile of legacy giving among the British public. This year’s campaign is focussed on  having your say on the world that you want to pass on.

Here at IFAW, we’re all for the Remember a Charity campaign, and we’d love to hear your ideas about your “pawprint” or legacy for animals.  We all leave our own unique stamp on the world and, like animals, we’re all different. Our vision is to create a world where animals are respected and protected – something we know we can achieve thanks to the generosity and support of so many caring people across the UK and beyond.

The work that IFAW does is unique and we know it has a huge impact on the lives of the world’s animals. In 2017 alone, we’ve been on the ground working to save elephants from extinction, for example by helping to facilitate the arrest of three notorious ivory poachers, providing emergency relief to animals affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and have released endangered animals such as Amur tigers back into protected areas in the wild.

But in all these successes, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the many supporters who have remembered IFAW in their wills, leaving behind their own unique pawprint for animals. We couldn’t do what we do without these fantastic gifts, which provide over one third of our voluntary funding.  These can be the most powerful gifts that you ever make and, personally, I’m often incredibly moved when I learn about how generous many of our supporters have been.

Writing your will and including just 1% for IFAW can make such a huge difference, and ensure that your pawprint will help support a brighter future for animals all over the world.

If you’d like to know more about leaving a gift in your will and whether you could be eligible to have your will written for free using our Free Will Service, get in touch with us today!
