The Nyika Vwaza (UK) Trust works to improve the conservation of both the fauna and flora od the Nyika National Park and the Vwaza March Wildlife Reserve through its programme of education in the communities surrounding the protected areas and its work in applied research to find solutions to significant threats to the ecology of these areas.
The Trust provides funding for these activities largely through the generosity of its supporters.
Leaving a legacy is one of the easiest ways to make a gift to charity. All charitable bequests are deducted from the value of the estate before inheritance tax is calculated.
There are three types of legacy bequest, Residuary, Pecuniary and Specific.
A residuary legacy is when a person leaves a percentage of their estate after all the other legacies have been made and debts cleared. One of the advantages of a residuary legacy is that it has the benefit of being inflation-proof and means you're less likely to need to update your will in the future.
A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a specified sum of money.
A specific legacy is a gift of a particular item such as books, paintings, antiques, jewellery, land or property.
Leaving a legacy is a good way to make a significant donation and help secure the charity's long-term future. Consult your solicitor on making a will or to make an adjustment to include a charity such as The Nyika-Vwaza Trust, or alternatively visit the 'Remember a Charity' website for a step-by-step guide.
If you decide to include The Nyika-Vwaza Trust in your will for a legacy, we would be grateful if you could inform us of your decision.
