Leaving a Legacy or Bequest

Thinking about your will? Building in a charity donation may have some tax advantages.

It’s useful to discuss with family and check out options with legal experts.

A bequest can be as a tribute for a life well-lived; AfriCat UK can be a chosen charity via Memory Giving or simply celebrate a special occasion. Your gift will be meaningful and long-lasting.

Note advice given to AfriCat UK has been that while it is quite possible to be very specific on a project to support this can create issues if the name has changed or that project is no longer running. Consider more generic terms like ‘research’ ‘education’ ‘community support’ or a specific animal.

Easy Fund Raising

AfriCat UK is signed up as a ‘member’ of two organizations which enable you to donate funds to the AfriCat UK bank account when you shop on line and at no additional cost to you!

These funds are then split 50/50 between the Namibian Lion Trust and The AfriCat Foundation.

Register with Easyfundraising who have literally hundreds of different well known websites linked to them. By going through the easyfundraising platform when shopping online (food, entertainment, travel, household and much more) a donation goes to AfriCat UK.
You do not pay more.

3. Buy something from the AfriCat Shop
The AfriCat Shop sells T shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, mugs, cards, posters, bags and puzzles. The goods are produced to order in the UK on the Isle of Wight. The clothes are made from organic cotton, all materials are sustainably sourced and made in a renewable energy powered factory.

4. Fundraise for AfriCat UK
Be that a coffee morning, donations instead of birthday gifts, running a 5k charity race, or whatever works for you! Please contact us to let us know what you are planning and we can see what support we can offer you, maybe a raffle prize, information or a personal thank you.

5. Volunteer your time to help us in the UK
We are keen to hear from people willing to help out with a range of activities, perhaps you would like to help with the newsletter, become a Trustee, develop/design goods to sell, answer incoming emails, attending events to promote AfriCat, or have some fundraising ideas …. Have an idea then we would love to hear from you.
