Leave a gift in your Will

After you've taken care of your loved ones, could you leave 1% of what's left to help Shropshire's wildlife?

The future is much too precious to be left to chance. That's why making a Will is one of the most important jobs that any of us has to do. I urge you to support Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

Sir David Attenborough
Vice President of The Wildlife Trusts 

Leaving a gift in your Will to Shropshire Wildlife Trust in your will can help protect the places in Shropshire you love and cherish for future generations.

Our vision for Shropshire over the next two generations is to see a county rich in wildlife, deeply valued by all who live here; wildlife valued not only for itself but for the contribution it makes to society and the economy.

This means...

  1. We will keep on buying the most important pieces of land in Shropshire to keep them safe for future generations.
  2. We will work with landowners, businesses and farmers to make space for nature and clean up our rivers.
  3. We will lead Shropshire’s children and families back out to the wild to play.
  4. We will fight alongside communities to safe- guard their green space for exercise, health and well being.

If you don’t have an up to date Will…
Having your affairs in order means that your estate goes to the people you love and to the charities you support. Leaving no Will can mean months of stress and excessive costs for your family.

A legacy to a charity can be tax efficient. Inheritance tax is currently payable at 40% on anything over £325,000 for a single person or £650,000 for a married couple. A gift to Shropshire Wildlife Trust would reduce any tax burden. Ask yourself, “who would I prefer to have my money – the Chancellor or Shropshire’s wildlife?”

Donations in memory

At times of loss, friends and family often express their sympathy by sending flowers, but cut flowers are short lived. Through a donation to the Trust, you can make a lasting memorial for your loved one. Your donation will help preserve Shropshire's woods, meadows, hills, wetlands and wild heathland - forever.
