Types of Legacy and Wording
Leaving a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to ensure that Tia can continue its work in helping the hundreds of Sighthounds, Horses and other animals we rescue and care for every year. The money will go help us provide food, bedding, kennelling, stabling and veterinary care for all the animals in our care. It will help us to keep our promise to never destroy a healthy dog and ensure we can give a permanent home to the dogs & horses who will never be suitable for rehoming.
If you would like to remember Tia in your Will, there are three main types of gift you can make:
- Residuary Gift: This is the gift of all (or part) of the value of your estate after debts, liabilities and other legacies have been paid. This is the most valuable kind of legacy to Tia.
- Pecuniary Gift: This is the gift of a fixed sum of money.
- Specific Gift: This is the gift of a specific item; for example, property, a painting or a piece of jewellery.
Suggested wording for a gift to Tia Rescue in your Will
If you would like to leave Tia a gift in your Will the following wording may be helpful when you visit your legal advisor:
“I give all (or a _% share of) the residue of my estate to Tia Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue Charity (Registered Charity Number 1105626 , Scottish Charity Number SC051782), Easter Hardmuir Farm, Auldearn, Nairn, Inverness, IV12 5QG or its general charitable purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a valid and appropriate form of discharge.”
Suggested wording for a codicil (change/addition) to Tia Rescue in your Will:
If you have already made your Will and decide that you would like to add a gift to Tia, the following wording for a codicil may be helpful when you visit your legal advisor:
“I (name) of (address) declare this to be my first codicil to my last Will dated (date). I give (details of legacy) to Tia Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue Charity (Registered Charity Number 1105626, Scottish Charity Number SC051782), Easter Hardmuir Farm, Auldearn, Nairn, Inverness, IV12 5QG shall be valid and appropriate form of discharge. In all other respects I confirm my Will.
Whilst Tia have made these suggestions we would always urge you to seek independent professional advice when making or updating a will.
