Bequests: A Gift For Future Generations

Make your Will a legacy for families with special needs children

Making a Will can save your family and friends stress, money and time. It provides you the opportunity to state who will benefit from your estate which may include bequests to charitable donations such as Smart Pups Assistance Dogs.

A bequest is simply a gift that is written in your Will.

Naturally, you will wish to ensure that your family is provided for first. After this you may decide to direct a gift of cash, property shares or other investments to help improve and enhance the lives of future generations. You can choose to leave a gift for a particular child, or you may allow us to allocate it to a priority need identified at the time.

Whatever the size or form of your bequest, this gift is one of the most important ways you can make a real difference to a child and their family.

How do I leave a gift?

Leaving a gift in your Will to Smart Pup Assistance Dogs is a simple process.

You can contact your solicitor or the executer of your Will to let them know you would like to include Smart Pups Assistance Dogs in your Will. As your Will is a legal document, it is important to have the correct wording to ensure your wishes for a bequest are carried out successfully.

We are very grateful to those that generously remember us and help improve the life a child living with a disability into the future.
