Every donation we receive makes a huge difference to our work, but gifts left in Wills are particularly special to us. Not only do they allow us to plan ahead and do so much more, but we know that every legacy represents someone who cared enough about our work to make a real difference.
Each legacy gift we receive is invested in our endowment fund – the Tusk Foundation – to provide a regular and sustainable source of income for both the charity’s operations and projects. No matter how large or small, leaving a gift to Tusk will help us realise our vision of a future in which Africa’s rich natural heritage is protected forever.
We realise it is very easy to put off making or changing a Will. Figures show that more than a third of people who support charities say they would leave a gift in their Will after family and friends have been provided for. But, unfortunately just 7% of people actually get around to doing it. The reality is that making, or even updating, a Will is easy.
We have plenty of information and advice if you would like to find out more about leaving a gift to Tusk in your Will, and we are also delighted to have the support of The Goodwill Partnership and Lexikin, who can both make the writing of a Will much easier.
