Leave your legacy – a lasting gift for Britain’s mammals

Why remember the Mammal Society in your will?
A gift left in your will helps us continue our work to:
- raise public awareness of mammals, their ecology and conservation needs
- encourage people to participate in mammal monitoring and recording
- develop the knowledge and field skills of those working for mammals
- research the causes of mammal declines and find effective solutions
- advocate robust, science-led conservation policy
Unlike most organisations monitoring British wildlife, we receive no central government funding for our core work. Our activities to halt the decline of threatened species, monitor their conservation status and advise on issues affecting British mammals, depends entirely on the generosity of our supporters.
With your help we can continue this research and conservation work to benefit Britain’s mammals for years to come.
How to leave a gift in your will
If you haven’t written your will yet, take a look at the quick guide to making a will in our downloadable brochure which explains more about what your will should include (coming soon). One of the first things to do is decide what kind of gifts you want to leave to your family and close friends, then think about what you’d like to give the Mammal Society.
Next, you should go to a solicitor or will writing service to have your will written. We can’t recommend a particular solicitor but if you go to the Law Society website www.lawsociety.org.uk you will be able to use their online service to find a solicitor near you.
Alternatively, you could visit The Goodwill Partnership website at www.thegoodwillpartnership.co.uk or a similar will writing service.
If you already have a will you can simply add a codicil. Make sure you get a solicitor to help you, or you may accidentally invalidate your existing will. When you store them, don’t pin or staple your codicil to your will, just keep them all together.
