Leaving a Legacy Gift in your will


Leaving a legacy gift in your Will is a good way to continue to help save and protect neglected, abused and abandoned animals. If you are an animal lover, like those of us volunteering with the Kildare & West Wicklow Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, such a gift shows that you care deeply about the welfare of all animals who are voiceless and need our help the most.

All the work done by the Society, including our Animal Welfare work, the running of our Animal Shelter and the operation of our Charity Shop, Noah’s Ark, in Newbridge, is done on a voluntary basis, there are no paid employees. This means that most of the money you leave to the KWWSPCA will go directly to helping animals in need.


Leaving a gift in your will to the KWWSPCA is a very personal and important decision and we strongly advise that you speak to a Solicitor about this to ensure that your wishes will be carried out as you intend. You will need to provide your Solicitor with the following details:

Name of the Charity: Kildare & West Wicklow Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Ltd
Registered Address: Mullinsella, Calverstown, Kilcullen, Co Kildare R56 C919
Registered Charity Number: CHY 6280

If you have already made your Will and now decide that you would like to leave a gift to the KWWSPCA, you can make a codicil or an addition to your original will. Your Solicitor can advise on how this is done.

The different types of legacy gifts

  • Pecuniary Gift – this is a gift of a specific amount of money in your Will. Any gift amount, however small, is extremely valuable to the KWWSPCA to help ensure we can continue to care for animals in need.
  • Residuary Gift – this is what is remaining of the assets in your estate once you have looked after your family and loved ones, fulfilled all promises to other beneficiaries and any debts are paid. By leaving any residual in your estate to the KWWSPCA, you are helping provide valuable funds to support our work.
  • Specific Item – this is a gift of a specific item and can be property, stocks, shares, jewellery or artwork, proceeds of a life insurance policy or any other items of value that can be used to help raise funds for the KWWSPCA.
