These are the five steps you need to take to make or update your Will:

  1. Use a Will planner to add up the estimated value of your estate and make a list of people and/or organisations you’d like to leave money, property or possessions to.
  2. Appoint one or more (up to four) Executors to carry out the terms of your Will. This can be a relative, friend or legal adviser.
  3. Visit a legal adviser to draw up or update your Will. If you’re including a gift to Tigers4Ever (Registered Charity No: 1160528), please use our suggested wording below.
  4. Make a copy of your Will, and make sure someone you trust knows where your original Will is kept (your legal adviser will often store it for you free of charge, or you can use the Probate Registry).
  5. If you’re remembering Tigers4Ever (Registered Charity No: 1160528) in your Will, thank you. Your gift will make a real difference. If you’d like to let us know this is your intention, please consider notifying us of your decision, as knowing this will help us plan for the future.

Types of gifts in Wills

There are three main types of gifts you can leave to the Tigers4Ever (Registered Charity No: 1160528) in your Will. We suggest you speak to your legal adviser to help you make the decision that’s right for you.

 

Every gift makes a difference to the tigers who need us and we want you to leave the right gift for your circumstances.

 

A residuary legacy is a percentage of whatever is left over from an estate after debts, funeral expenses, administration costs, and all other gifts have been paid. This can be any percentage you like. Many people choose this type of gift as it ensures their loved ones are taken care of first.


A pecuniary legacy is a fixed sum of money that can be any amount, big or small. When it comes to protecting tigers and other animals from extinction, every gift counts.


A specific legacy is a gift of a particular item, such as property or an item of jewellery.  
























Suggested wording for your gift

Here is the suggested wording you need in order to include Tigers4Ever (Registered Charity No: 1160528) in your Will:


Unrestricted gifts

Many people choose to leave an unrestricted or general gift. It’s the most helpful because it allows us to use your gift wherever the need is greatest.

 

You can leave an unrestricted gift, which can be either residuary or pecuniary, using the words below:


I give the sum of £ (or specify percentage of estate) to Tigers4Ever (registered charity number 1160528) for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of Tigers4Ever for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.


Restricted gifts

You can also specify how or where you’d like your gift to be used by leaving a restricted gift. If you’d like to leave a restricted gift, please contact us to discuss the area of our work you’d specifically like to support, please contact us on 07706951927.


To leave a restricted gift, use the wording below:

 

I give the sum of £ (or specify percentage of estate) to Tigers4Ever (registered charity number 1160528) for its general purpose and I express the wish but without creating any binding trust that this legacy be used in the (specify) areas and I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of the said Tigers4Ever for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.

Updating or changing your Will at a later date

If the change is simple, this can be done with something called a Codicil – a legally binding document used to amend or update a Will. For more complicated changes a new Will may be necessary.
