No one wants to think too hard about their mortality, however many of us like to think that when we are gone we can continue to bring happiness to people and help a good cause. Leaving funds to the Centre is a way to show your appreciation of the work done here and share you love for the birds when you can no longer appreciate them in person. Helping the ICBP with a donation in your will could perhaps fund a special project that particularly interests you or a member of your family, or could be purely to commemorate a special life with something that will last into the future.
These legacies are incredibly valuable to us and so if you feel that the work the Centre does is worthwhile, and of course we hope that you do, please consider leaving some funds in your Will – after all, it has to be better than letting the Tax man have any of it.
About ten years ago we were nearly left a quarter of a million pounds. Because we did not have charitable status and the Will stipulated that, we could not benefit, but our Trust, the National Birds of Prey Trust did and is continuing to do sterling work with the funds. However I often imagine what we could have done at the Centre with those funds – oh boy, a ton of good work. So if you feel that you would like to benefit the birds long term and help us, please do consider putting our name in your Will.
