Including a gift in your Will to RSPCA Victoria is one of the best ways of making a real difference to animals in need. The deep love you feel for animals can live on and help to create a kinder world for animals long after you’ve gone.
You’ll become an enduring and fundamental part of the future we all want, one in which no animal experiences cruelty, abuse or neglect at the hands of human beings. Your support will enable us to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals, and give them a second chance in a loving, new family.
Including a gift in your Will is also meaningful way to honour the love and joy pets in your life have given you, while helping create a better world for all animals.
How to include a gift in your will
Including a gift to RSPCA Victoria in your Will is very easy. The next time you are updating or changing your Will, you can simply ask your solicitor or Trustee Company to insert a few simple words into your new Will. Whatever your circumstances, we recommend that you see a solicitor when writing or updating your Will to ensure your wishes will be fulfilled.
There are three main ways to leave a gift in your Will to RSPCA Victoria.
- Percentage Gift – You simply state in your Will what percentage of your estate you would like to give.
- Residual Gift – After family and friends have been taken care of, and all costs have been dealt with, you can make a gift of the remainder or residue of your estate, or a percentage of that residue.
- Specific – You may wish to include a specific dollar amount for your gift, or specific assets such as property or shares.
Many supporters think that it’s easier to leave a percentage of their estate or something from the residue. That way you can look after your loved ones and make a wonderful contribution towards the charities and causes that mean the most to you.
A gift in your Will to RSPCA Victoria, no matter what the amount, will make a positive difference to the lives of animals.
