Gifts in Wills Options

Together, we can build a better world for the animals we love.

After making provisions for those you want to provide for, you can help the animals you love so much through including a gift in your Will to RSPCA ACT. No matter the size of your gift it will help to leave animals a better world.

There are various ways you can include RSPCA ACT in your Will. The two main types of gifts our supporters leave:

  1. Percentage of your estate
    Simply state in your Will what percentage of your estate you would like to be left to RSPCA ACT. Some people leave just a few percent. Some leave everything to animals.
  2. Residue of your estate
    After gifts to others have been taken care of and all costs have been dealt with, the residue of your estate – everything that remains – is then left to RSPCA ACT to protect animals long into the future.

Legacies to assist specific areas
If you are interested in leaving a gift towards a specific area of RSPCA ACT, please get in touch with our Bequest Officer on 02 6287 8109 or email
