Leaving a gift in your Will is an act of kindness, it ensures your love and support for animals will continue beyond your own lifetime. Without generous gifts being left in Wills, which account for over half of our income, we simply would not be able to do our job. Preventing cruelty, educating children and rescuing and rehabilitating animals – none of it would be possible without legacies. We are entirely funded by generous donations from the public as we receive no government funding.
Why leave a gift in your Will?
We understand that writing a Will is very personal and friends and family will be front of mind. Every single gift matters to us, as it allows us to continue championing animal welfare and helping animals in need in Scotland.
Did you know you could leave the Scottish SPCA even as little as 1% in your will so those closest to you will inherit 99%? Whatever you decide to gift, your legacy will be one of helping us to continue to investigate cruelty, rescue wildlife, give animals a second chance, educate people and pioneer new research to improve the animal welfare world.
If the time is ever right for you to remember a charity in your will, please remember the Scottish SPCA. It will allow your love for animals to live on and on.
How do I leave a gift?
Watch our virtual legacy event which was held on 26 May 2021 with our CEO Kirsteen Campbell, head of partnerships, Sharon Comrie, and Adrian Howlett from Jones Whyte solicitors.
It’s advisable to have a solicitor write your Will for you, to ensure all the right signatures and requirements are in place. If you have a Will, you can still help us by adding a codicil to your existing Will. You can get a codicil form as part of our legacy pack.
If you don’t have your own solicitor, we are here to help. Jones Whyte LLP offer a free Will writing and review service for anyone leaving a gift in their Will to the Scottish SPCA. It’s quick and easy and can be done by phone or video appointment. Find out more here.
