In 2017/2018, almost 4% of all donations received by UK charities came from legacies, 10% of which being pecuniary gifts (a specific sum of money) and 90% residuary gifts (your leftover property). This means that for most charities, 4p in every £1 comes from the good will of dedicated donors. Our dogs could really use that help, which is why Romanian Rescue Appeal kindly asks you to consider leaving a gift in your will to their benefit.
We will spend 100% of your donations on the dogs. As you can find in our accounts, around 38% of our costs is spent on food, 27% on veterinary care and 22% on transport for the lucky ones to get to their forever homes in the UK. Unfortunately, this is not enough, and that’s why we need your help.
As well as the gift itself being tax-free, charitable gifts can also reduce the amount of inheritance tax that the rest of your estate will pay. If you give at least 10% of your taxable estate to charity, the inheritance tax rate for the rest of your estate drops from 40% to 36%. Get in touch with us if you want to know more about how this works and we’ll be happy to help.
Thank you for your continued support, our dogs and everyone at Romanian Rescue Appeal greatly appreciates it.
