Gifts in Wills

Gifts in Wills account for a quarter of the income we receive from individuals. Writing a gift into your Will really does help us to ensure animals such as rhinos and elephants still exist in our children and grandchildren’s lifetimes.

By leaving Fauna & Flora International a gift in your Will, you are making a positive impact on the future of our natural world for generations to come.

Gifts in Wills have already helped us to achieve so much

  • Establishing new Orang-utan Protection and Monitoring Teams in Borneo to mitigate against the poaching, habitat loss, illegal logging and forest fires that threaten this great ape’s future;
  • helped us to secure critical habitat in Portugal for the world’s rarest cat species – the Iberian lynx; and
  • Building the capacity of our work with all four gorilla subspecies – including the Critically Endangered Cross River gorilla where we are close to establishing a community forest sanctuary that will provide robust protection for many of the 250 remaining individuals

We understand that friends and family come first, but once your loved ones have been taken care of please consider leaving something – it doesn’t how large or small – to support of work and help us ensure that future generations benefit from a world as rich in life as that which we have enjoyed.

Writing a Will can seem daunting, and we always advise that you speak with a solicitor about it. However, if you have any questions about remembering FFI in your Will then please do not hesitate to contact us. Our Gifts in Wills adviser, Paul White, will be only too happy to help and can be contacted at:

How to leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is often far simpler than people think. We can provide some advice and support if you are thinking of including a gift and don’t know where to start. But here’s some simple steps:

  • State in your Will that you would like to leave a gift. We always recommend using a professional legal adviser, such as a solicitor, to write or make changes to your Will
  • Include our full name, address and charity number – so that you can be sure the gift goes to the right place: Fauna & Flora International, 4th Floor Jupiter House, Station Road, Cambridge, CB1 2JD, UK. Registered Charity Number: 1011102
  • Include any wishes as to how you would like us to use your gift – it’s worth speaking to us first if you do have any specific wishes, so that we can make sure that we can fulfil those wishes when the time comes

The contents of your Will are private, as are your intentions for your estate. However, if you choose to let us know that you have included a gift to FFI in your Will then we would love to hear from you. Quite simply this gives us the opportunity to say thank you for choosing to support us in this valuable way.

You can download our Gifts in Wills pack which aim to answer some of the questions you might have about writing or updating your Will. It includes information on the different types of gifts that can be included in Wills, and tries to answer some of the more common questions people have about writing Wills and including gifts. We have tried to make this information as simple as possible – avoiding confusing legal terms where possible – so if there is anything not covered in the information sheets then please feel free to let us know.

Finally

Thank you for your interest in supporting FFI with a gift in your Will – these gifts are so important in enabling us to save endangered species and ecosystems all around the world. If you decide that the time is right and you wish to remember FFI in your Will then thank you – your support will make a genuine difference to our work. In return we pledge to use your gift efficiently and effectively to support conservation where it is most urgent and where possible to respect any wishes you might have for how we use that gift.

“Without FFI’s dedicated untiring efforts one would be tempted to despair. I know that there are other organisations world-wide which are doing great work for conservation but FFI is something very special.”
