How to include a gift in your Will

THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

Here's how to get started

If you’re ready to include a gift to WDC, we always recommend working with a professional to write your Will. You can either find a solicitor in your area, or use Farewill to write your Will for free. Whichever option you use, it’s good to be aware of the types of gifts you can include.

WHAT SORT OF GIFT WOULD YOU LIKE TO INCLUDE?

When writing or updating your Will to include a gift, you may wish to use the following wording.

I give to WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Brookfield House, 38 St Paul Street, Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN15 1LJ (registered charity number for England and Wales 1014705 or SC040231 for Scotland), the gift of [insert percentage here]% of my estate to be used by WDC at its discretion. I declare that the receipt of the finance director, or appropriate officer, shall be complete discharge to my executors.
