Willfora is thrilled to announce our partnership with World Animal Protection, a global animal welfare charity reaching over 50 countries around the world. We are so proud to be supporting this charity on their mission to move the world to protect animals. For over 55 years, World Animal Protection has been protecting animals in the wild, on farms, and in communities, and we’re excited to join them to secure legacy gifts that will ensure the continued protection of animals around the world!
Leaving a legacy with World Animal Protection
Legacy gifts are a powerful way to create change and carry on a legacy of hope for a better world even after your lifetime. Legacy gifts can be left through a fixed amount called a cash gift or as a portion of your estate called a residual gift. World Animal Protection relies on legacy gifts to contribute to their future projects, which help them achieve feats like moving travel companies to take responsibility and put an end to the exploitation of wildlife in entertainment venues.
How can legacy gifts help World Animal Protection and similar organizations?
A study by the Canadian Association of Gift Planners (CAGP) found that only about 5% of Canadians currently leave a gift to charity in their Will, but just a 3.5% increase in that number will provide an additional $40 billion to Canadian charities. Since Willfora launched, we’re proud to announce that we’ve raised nearly $50 million in future gifts, and your legacy gift will ensure that World Animal Protection continues to carry out their vision of a world where animals are free from cruelty and suffering. Charities love to plan for the future and legacy gifts are an important way for them to predictably grow and provide a greater impact for their cause.
