Leaving a gift in your will

A gift in your Will to World Horse Welfare is a gift to the horses you love, and a promise for their future.

A gift in your Will to World Horse Welfare is a gift to the horses you love, and a promise for their future.

Why include a gift to World Horse Welfare in your Will?

You can support World Horse Welfare and help horses in so many ways but donations in the form of legacies, or donations in memory of loved ones, are some of the most personal and heartfelt we receive. Gifts in Wills, no matter how large or small, have a substantial and lasting impact on the work we continue to do helping horses. A legacy gift can give horses in need all over the world a second chance to lead a full and happy life.

If, after making provision for your loved ones, you would like to leave money in your Will to an animal charity, our Gifts in Wills Guide is completely free and provides you with the information you need to pledge a legacy to help horses. The guide tells you all about our work helping horses in the UK and around the world, as well as campaigning for improved equine welfare standards. It also includes suggested Will wording for solicitors and our Gifts in Wills FAQs.

Gifts in Wills make up more than half of our annual income and it is with these vital funds we are able to continue our work helping horses in the UK and around the world. 

How does World Horse Welfare help horses with gifts in Wills?

World Horse Welfare has been improving the lives of horses for almost a century. A gift in your Will will help to ensure that this vital work in the UK and around the world continues and can develop to meet future challenges.

As an equine charity, horse welfare is at the heart of everything we do. World Horse Welfare works in the UK rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming horses. Our international projects help working horses by collaborating with in-country organisations and working with local communities to achieve sustainable, lasting improvements to equine welfare. We also campaign across all areas of the horse-human partnership to improve welfare standards and safeguard the future of horses.
