Help us to be here for thoroughbred ex-racehorses for many years to come by leaving a gift in your will.
Give former racehorses a life after racing
Leaving a gift in your will to The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rehoming Centre is a wonderful way to celebrate your love of thoroughbred racehorses and give them a second chance of the happiness they deserve.
A legacy for their future
Gifts in wills are vital for The Centre’s work in retraining and providing a safe home for former racehorses. Many of the horses we help go on to enjoy a fulfilling second career as eventers, show jumpers, happy hackers, or companions, bringing much love and joy to their new owners.
They rely on the kindness of horse lovers like you. So, please consider leaving a legacy in your will, or donating in memory of a loved one. Your gift will be so important in helping us provide forever homes for more horses in need.
Ways of leaving a gift in your will
A pecuniary gift
A pecuniary gift is a fixed sum of money or a specific gift of a particular item such as a piece of jewellery or shares.
A residuary gift
A residuary gift is a percentage of what is left of your estate after all other gifts and payments have been made. Many people choose to leave a residual gift, as they can make sure their family and friends are looked after first.
Gifts to charity are free of inheritance tax. Leaving a gift to charity in your will could also reduce the rate of inheritance tax paid on your estate.
We recommend that you have a discussion with your chosen solicitor to assess which is the best option for you, your other beneficiaries, and our charity.
With a gift in your will, you’ll never stop caring and neither will we.
