Any size of gift or bequest in your will helps IGDF improve the availability of safe and effective guide dog services around the world, and enables more people who are blind or have low vision to live life on their terms.
Leaving a gift in a Will
A gift in a Will can involve a particular amount, a specific item, or a percentage of your estate. Before you start to think about the type of bequest that best suits you, it’s important to consider what is important to you and how you would like to be remembered.
Discuss your decision with your family and loved ones. This will ensure they understand and support your reasons for choosing to help the International Guide Dog Federation.
Consult your legal advisor or solicitor to ensure the option you’ve chosen best reflects your wishes. We recommend you seek the advice of an independent solicitor or qualified legal advisor before making any changes to your Will. You should also seek qualified advice before choosing executors to administer your estate.
How a previous gift in a will was used
Previous gifts in wills have helped IGDF work to achieve a world in which people who are blind or have low vision can access quality guide dog services. IGDF has used previous gifts to further develop and strengthen our Standards and to support specific guide dog education and research projects through the Derek Freeman Scholarship.
