Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

Gift in a Will

Leaving a gift in your will to MADRA is a wonderful way of lending us your lasting support and will allow us to provide care for future generations of dogs in need of our help. You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will, any amount whether large or small is sure to make a difference.

If you wish to draw up a Will we recommend that you seek out help from a legal advisor who will assist you with the process of making MADRA a listed beneficiary.  

If you have already made a Will and would like to leave a legacy gift to MADRA, you can make a simple addition called a codicil.

The kinds of legacy gifts that can be left to our charity in your Will:

  • A Residuary Legacy gift This is a gift of estate which remains after the satisfaction of all other beneficiaries. You may wish to donate a share of, or all of, your remaining assets which are left once family and friends have been taken care of.
  • A Pecuniary Legacy donation This is a specific sum of money that can be donated to MADRA by listing on your Will the name of our charity and the amount you wish to give.
  • A specific gift Any item that you wish to donate, such as a house, a piece of jewellery or shares in a company. It can be any item that you think will be of value to MADRA when sold

Gifts in Memory

A gift in memory is a wonderful way to remember someone you have lost. Choosing to honour a friend, relative or a beloved pet with a gift in memory can mean a great deal at a time of sadness and through supporting the work of MADRA you can be assured you are doing something in their name that will make a real difference.

By giving a gift in memory you will be helping us continue to carry out the vital work we do rescuing and re-homing hundreds of dogs in need of our help each year. A gift in memory at your time of loss could mean hope and a lifeline for one of the many unwanted dogs coming into our care.

MADRA works to educate members of the general public to have a responsible attitude towards dogs and their welfare and to help create a world where no healthy, good-natured dogs are killed merely because they are considered to be a surplus number.
