Leave a Gift for Wildlife

Imagine leaving a gift that could truly last for generations, a gift that meant others could enjoy Leicestershire and Rutland’s wildlife and wild places just as you do now, for years to come.

Including a gift in your Will to the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust could make that difference. Any gift however large or small, helps to protect threatened species and fragile habitats across our two counties.

Last year a key part of our income came from people like you choosing to leave a gift in their Will.

These gifts are essential for us to continue to:

  • Manage and enhance our nature reserves
  • Protect the region’s most threatened habitats and species 
  • Inspire young people about the natural world
  • Create a Living Landscape across our two counties
  • Campaign for greater protection for wildlife

In the past lasting legacies have helped us:

  • Restore woodland in the Ulverscroft Valley to provide a sanctuary for a rich variety of plants, birds and insects
  • Acquire new nature reserves in the Soar Valley to create an extensive mosaic of wetland habitats, delivering significant gains for both wildlife and people
  • Enhance Rutland Water Nature Reserve – one of our largest and best known nature reserves
  • Construct a new Volunteer Training Centre to support, develop and train volunteers of all ages and backgrounds

You can help secure a future for local wildlife

Your Will enables you to plan ahead for the people, places and causes you care about. Making a Will leaves matters simple and straightforward for your family. Legacies to the Trust are free from Inheritance Tax so the full value of your gift will go straight to wildlife conservation. 

Once you have provided for your loved ones, please consider including a gift in your Will to the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust.

Legacy Pledge 

Whilst many members and supporters may be planning to include a gift in their Will for Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust, very few ever tell us in advance. However, as we plan for the future of the Trust, it can be very helpful to know that people intend to support us in their Will. We don’t need to know details other than that they intend to leave a gift, so please get in touch.
