Leave a donation to Wolfwood in Wills and Legacies

Your legacy can ensure the continued care of animals in need.

Legacy donations are invaluable in enabling us to plan for the future and make a lasting impact.

By leaving a gift to Wolfwood in your will, you can extend your unwavering support even after you are gone.

Wolfwood is dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted and abandoned animals in Lancaster and the surrounding areas. Your legacy will play a crucial role in our mission to provide these animals with a second chance at a loving home.

Every year, we open our doors to animals who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. With the unwavering support of our donors, we are able to provide these animals with a second chance at a loving home.

Wolfwood is a self-funded organization, relying solely on the generosity of our supporters.

Unlike larger charities, you can be confident that every penny donated goes directly to the care and well-being of our animals.

Your contribution will not be used for administrative costs or expensive advertising campaigns. Instead, it will make a tangible difference in the lives of animals in need.

Your support will enable us to continue our mission of providing a safe haven for abandoned and neglected animals.

With your help, we can give these animals the second chance they deserve.

Every legacy, regardless of size, holds immense value to us. Whether it’s a humble £100 or a substantial £100,000, your generosity will be profoundly appreciated and channeled towards our mission of caring for unwanted pets and reducing animal abandonment.

Leaving a gift to Wolfwood in your will should be a source of personal fulfillment, knowing that your contribution will make a lasting impact on the lives of animals in need. We wholeheartedly encourage you to consider including Wolfwood in your estate planning.

Given the significance of ensuring your loved ones are cared for and the pivotal role of legacy gifts in sustaining charities, it’s surprising that only three in ten individuals in the UK have a will. Contrary to popular belief, drafting a will is a straightforward process and not as costly as one might assume. Consulting a solicitor can guide you through the process seamlessly.

Without a will, your estate will be distributed according to law, potentially disregarding your wishes. If you have no family, your entire estate will pass to the state. Safeguarding your assets and ensuring they align with your intentions underscores the importance of having a will.

Drafting a Will is not difficult.  A visit to a solicitor will ensure that your beneficiaries will inherit according to your wishes.  A solicitor’s fee for drafting a Will is not expensive.

If you have already made a Will and would like to add a legacy to Wolfwood your solicitor can easily draft an addendum, called a Codicil.  Again this is a simple and inexpensive process.

Your generous support is crucial in enabling us to plan for the future.

We are grateful for your pledge and the impact it will have on our organization.

We would be honored to discuss with you how your legacy bequest can play a meaningful role in our future and perpetuate your life values.

We have a range of memorial bequest opportunities available and would be happy to discuss them with you.

Your act of kindness would help us to save lives and reduce the number of unwanted and abandoned animals that are tragically destroyed every day in this country.

We appreciate your support and look forward to working together to make a difference.

There are different types of legacies that you can leave in your will. These include:

  1. Residual legacy: This is the remainder of your estate after other gifts and payments have been made. It is proportional to the value of your estate and is a popular choice among our supporters.

  2. Pecuniary legacy: This is a fixed sum of money that you can leave to a particular person. However, the value of pecuniary legacies could decrease over time as the cost of living increases.

  3. Specific legacy: This is a specific named item, such as a piece of jewelry or property, that you can leave to a particular person.

  4. Residual legacy after a partner dies: This allows you to leave assets for the care of a loved one for the duration of their life. When they die, your legacy will then go to your chosen recipient.
