Proud Supporters of Remember A Charity Week

Every year, more and more people like to leave a gift to charity in their Will.

Most of our funds come from the generosity of people like you; but it's a little known fact that gifts in Wills are actually one of our most vital sources of income. Charitable legacies are the foundation for causes like ours and are vital in continuing our work. Even a small amonut can make a big difference.

That's why we're taking part in Remember A Charity in your Will Week, from 11 - 17 September 2017.

Writing a Will is one of the most important things you will ever do. After you've taken care of your loved ones, you too can pass something special on by including a charity you are passionate about.

Please explore the following pages to read about how your gift can support our work, the many people who have generously left us a gift, and to find more information on what it entails, including some Frequently Asked Questions.

You can also contact Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Legacies Manager, Jessica Thompson, direct for any questions you may have: by email at or telephone 01904 659570.

Thank you.


We receive no direct support from the government and instead rely on the generosity of those who wish to see Yorkshire's wildlife protected forever. A gift in a Will or a donation in memory can help Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to continue to make sure that Yorkshire's wildlife is around for future generations to enjoy.

Leaving a gift in your Will

A gift to Yorkshire Wildlife Trust really is a forever gift ensuring we can keep on looking after and restoring green spaces so future generations can enjoy the great outdoors, just like you did.

Donating in Memory

The kind of donation that friends and families choose to make is a personal choice but whatever you choose the Trust can help find the perfect way to commemorate your loved one.

A Page of Remembrance

This page is dedicated to those who have remembered Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in their Wills and those whose friends and families have chosen to donate in memory to us.
