Leaving a lasting legacy for the animals of Greece
Why choose GAWF?
GAWF has campaigned and worked tirelessly since 1959 to bring about significant and lasting improvement to the treatment and status of animals in Greece. The charity has progressed with its mission by raising awareness of the plight of animals, providing practical help and funding to various projects throughout the country. Leaving a legacy to GAWF is an effective way for you to make a lasting contribution to the welfare of Greek animals for generations to come. We do not receive any state aid from the Greek or UK governments and we can only continue with our life-changing work through the generosity of our loyal supporters.
Making your will…
A clear, well-written will should ensure that there is no dispute regarding your wishes after your death and employing a solicitor to do the job is advisable. It does not have to be expensive or complicated. Before you go to your solicitor, make sure that you have all the information that they will need - names and addresses of all beneficiaries plus any charity registration numbers, so you can be sure that no-one is left out accidentally. If you have a husband, wife or partner, both of you need to have up-to-date wills. There is usually a reduction in fees if couples make ‘mirror’ wills.
There are various ways of leaving a gift in your will so it is important to decide which type of gift you wish to leave to each recipient:
A 'residuary' gift is a percentage or fraction of your estate and means that you do not have to put a precise value on your gift.
A 'pecuniary' gift is a specific sum of money.
A 'specific' gift is a particular item from your possessions, e.g. a favourite necklace or piece of artwork etc.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss with us how to remember The Greek Animal Welfare Fund in your will. Any contact will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
Please help GAWF to continue to make life worth living for Greek animals. Thank you.
