We Speak For Those Who Can’t….
Your Legacy Can Provide For Their Future

BEQUESTS

Do you have the WILL to care?

If you saw or heard of someone inflicting pain and suffering on an animal, you’d step in to help, wouldn’t you?  But what is something you did now had the power to protect animals’ way into the future, even beyond your own lifetime? Leaving a bequest to the Kloof and Highway SPCA in your Will is a way of ensuring that your compassion towards our fellow creatures’ lives on and you’ll be remembered for your kindness for a long time, long time to come.

What is a bequest?

A bequest simply a gift of money or property left to a person or organisation after your death. It provides an opportunity to benefit others in a way that you might not be able to afford to do right now. Only when you no longer need it is the gift used to help someone else.

What about my family?

When you draw up your Will your first concern is naturally for your loved ones. You will want to make sure your partner is left financially secure. And if you have young children you need to provide for them. Outside your immediate family, there may be relatives and friends to whom you wish to leave the special item of jewellery or other possessions you know they will treasure. Your love of animals may also mean you wish to leave a specific amount once you have ensured your family are cared for. If your children are grown up and are comfortably settled or if you have no immediate family you need to provide for, you may wish to include a bequest to the Kloof and Highway SPCA to ensure our valuable work continues into the future.

What about my own pets?

Please remember to make provision for your own pets and what will happen to them in the event of your death.

Estate planning 

Including a bequest to charitable institutions can also help reduce the amount of tax payable when you die. A bequest is deductible for the calculation of estate duty purposes and so in effect once your estate reaches a certain level you either pay estate duty (tax) or could leave some money to the Kloof and Highway SPCA where it has huge benefits for their continued vital work in animal welfare. The Kloof and Highway SPCA would be able to arrange for a lawyer to draw up your will.  On no account should you attempt the task yourself since the document has to be legally stated and properly signed and witnessed in order to be valid.

How would the SPCA use a gift from me?

Depending on the size of the gift it could be used to enhance the facilities at the Kloof and Highway SPCA, to purchase an item of equipment for the clinic or to offer support to our Outreach Clinics. Smaller gifts are equally useful in providing for the ongoing care of animals that are brought to us. It is important that when leaving a bequest to SPCA that you are specific about naming “KLOOF AND HIGHWAY SPCA”.

If you would like to discuss in detail how a bequest from you could best be put to use, kindly e-mail Janine Kyle on pr@kloofspca.co.za

CODICIL

If you have already made a Will and you wish to give a gift to the Kloof and Highway SPCA, you may add a codicil (addition). A codicil needs to be witnessed and signed in the same way as the original Will and should be kept in the same place as the original Will.

To book a consultation for your will to be drawn up free of charge by a registered attorney or to find out more information on how you can leave a bequest please contact: Janine Kyle on pr@kloofspca.co.za

If you have included Kloof and Highway SPCA in your Will – or are thinking of doing so – please let us know. It gives us the chance to discuss with you how you would like your gift used, and thank you now! It also means you can be informed of all our projects and attend any functions if you wish.

A bequest is deductible for the calculation of estate duty purposes. In effect once your estate reaches a certain level; you either pay estate duty (tax) or could leave some money to the Kloof and Highway SPCA where it will be used for the good of animals. It may not ‘cost’ anything but it has huge benefits for those who cannot speak for themselves. The bequest could either be directed at a specific project or added to the Society’s normal funds.

Upon signing up, you hereby give permission to use your information as set out in the Kloof SPCA Privacy Policy.
