Helping rhinos by leaving a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to Helping Rhinos is a way of showing your family and friends that you care for rhinos and their precious wild habitat and want to give them a helping hand, by leaving a lasting gift in your will.

It doesn't have to be a large sum to make a difference.

How to leave a legacy

If you wish to leave a legacy to Helping Rhinos, it is important to decide the type of legacy you wish to leave. This can be a specific legacy, a pecuniary legacy or a residuary bequest.

It is helpful if bequests are made for the general charitable purposes of the charity as this means your gift can be spent where it is most needed at the time it is received.

Types of legacy

  • A specific legacy consists of a specific item of personal property.
  • A pecuniary legacy consists of a specified sum of money.
  • A residuary bequest is the residue of your estate, or a share of the residue, after your debts have been settled and any legacies you leave to other people have been paid.

A residuary bequest is generally of the greatest benefit to our charity as its value increases in line with inflation.

Adding to your existing Will

If you have already made your will, a bequest to our charity may be added to it by way of a Codicil.

Your Solicitor can advise you and assist in drawing up your Will. If you would like further information and wish to speak to someone in confidence regarding a legacy to Helping Rhinos, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
