Thank you for administering an estate in which IFAW is a beneficiary. We understand that this can be a particularly difficult time and appreciate that administering an estate can be complex. To help keep things straightforward for you, we have prepared the following information to guide you through common areas of estate administration which need to be dealt with in a particular way where a beneficiary is a charity. You can find a PDF download version further down the page.
If you encounter any problems during the administration, please inform the beneficiaries. Many years' experiences may mean that we have already met a similar issue and may be able to help.
