Leave a gift in your Will

Leave a gift in your Will

Protect the wildlife you love in Dorset, for future generations

Imagine leaving a gift that truly lasts for generations. A gift that allows others to enjoy Dorset’s wildlife and wild places for years to come - just like you do now. A gift that will provide a wilder future for the people, places and wildlife of Dorset.

Leaving a gift in your Will to Dorset Wildlife Trust could make that difference.

How your gift could help

Increasingly our supporters are making the incredible decision to leave a gift to Dorset Wildlife Trust in their Will.

Your gift, no matter the size, allows your passion for nature to live on and ensure those following in your footsteps can experience the amazing wildlife that calls Dorset home. Every legacy allows us to protect and buy more nature reserves, save more species, and ensure that future generations can experience and enjoy nature.

Every single gift we receive is hugely important and makes a vital contribution to our work. You can be confident that your legacy will make a real difference and will be put to good use meeting the most urgent conservation needs.

We are so grateful for supporters like Joan, featured in our video, who cared deeply about the wildlife of Dorset and who shared our vision for the future.  

How to include a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is something you can do now, that will cost you nothing, but which will make a huge difference to the future of Dorset’s wildlife. To make a new Will or update an existing one, you will need to speak to a solicitor. You may have a family solicitor you already use. If not, ask a relative or friend to recommend one. Or you can write your Will with our Free Wills Service

Leaving just 1% to Dorset Wildlife Trust in your Will can make a huge difference, and means your loved ones still receive 99%.

To leave a gift to Dorset Wildlife Trust in your Will, you will need our registered address and charity number:

Dorset Wildlife Trust
Brooklands Farm, Forston
Dorchester, DT2 7AA

Registered charity number: 200222

Free Will writing service

Dorset Wildlife Trust has teamed up with local solicitors to provide a Free Will writing service to our members, giving you the chance to create a simple Will or update an existing Will for free. Dorset Wildlife Trust would be honoured if members using this service remember us in their Will. However, there is no obligation to do so. If you are interested in benefitting from this offer, please contact Rachel Janes on 07866 525215 or email rjanes@dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk
