Legacies: a promise to the future of Norfolk's wildlife

A gift to Norfolk Wildlife Trust in your Will means you will help future generations to experience and enjoy our outstanding natural heritage as we do today. Every penny that we receive helps us protect and care for wildlife and importantly helps us plan for the future of our many nature reserves, some 10,000 acres across the length and breadth of Norfolk.
If your passion is the safeguarding the great outdoors, we can use your gift to purchase and conserve land; or if you want to help young people value nature, we can use it to engage children with their natural environment. You may want to simply support our continued protection of Norfolk’s wildlife and it could be used to repair hides and build boardwalks; put up boxes for bats; make ponds for natterjacks.

Making the decision to give to the future of wildlife takes time and consideration and you need to be happy with how we use your gift. We are always here to talk about how we can meet your wishes.  

Once you have taken care of your loved ones, please consider including a gift to Norfolk Wildlife Trust in your Will. No matter how big or small, you can be sure it will make a difference to Norfolk’s wildlife.

To ensure that a charity ultimately benefits from your gift, your solicitor or Will writer will need the following information:

  • Finding out more about our conservation and education work may inform your decision and you can join us on our special guided walks to do so. Held at nature reserves across Norfolk, these offer a chance to meet key staff over tea and cake and enjoy our wild spaces.

Anyone who cares about wildlife has a marvellous opportunity to do something quite unique, by remembering their Norfolk Wildlife Trust in their Will. This generous act is one of the most important things you can do to make sure the species and habitats we love will be there for future generations to enjoy.
