Remember birds in your will

If you have had a lifetime’s pleasure from birds, why not help ensure their future by leaving a legacy/bequest to BirdLife South Africa in your will? Any amount, large or small, will be put to excellent use. Your will helps to ensure that your intentions are honoured after your lifetime. It can help protect the people closest to you, and further the causes about which you feel most deeply.

BirdLife South Africa’s work could not continue without the generous bequests from many of our supporters. It is not just a thing for wealthy people to do nowadays.

Supporters come from all walks of life who wish to leave something to the wild birds and their habitats which brought so much pleasure to their lives.

There are many ways to give in memory

For example, you could make a donation to BirdLife South Africa instead of buying flowers for a funeral. You could make a one-off donation at any time, or you can donate on a regular basis – for instance to commemorate a loved one’s birthday or an anniversary.

Donations in excess of R500 attract a section 18A donation tax certificate.

If birds and nature enrich your life, please consider BirdLife South Africa in your will. We are tremendously grateful to those supporters who have done so, and without whose generosity and forethought we would not be able to continue with our work.
