Choosing to make a gift in your Will, means being able to take your passion for dog health and welfare into the future.

Your gift enables us to keep tails wagging long after you are gone by finding life-saving treatments and investing in specialised training that benefits not just the dogs we love, but the people whose lives they share.

It also means we can rely on committed, unrestricted giving with the capacity to sustain and expand the work that we do.

The difference you can make

The Trust is grateful for all the bequests it receives, no matter what their size. Here are a few examples of how a legacy gift can keep tails wagging and faces smiling.

£10,000 | could provide veterinary care for 20-30 dogs in need in a rescue centre.
£30,000 | could train a support dog, enabling its human owner to live a safe, free and fulfilling life.
£100,000 | could fund vital research into breed-specific diseases, improving the health of dogs long-term.

In for a penny, in for a hound

Leaving a gift in your Will is a very personal decision. In fact, it may be the most significant or sizeable charitable gift you’ve ever made. To help you with this process, our Legacy team are more than happy to offer support and guidance, should you prefer to talk things through before finalising your commitment. If you’d like to speak to someone about your gift, please get in touch with us at fundraising@kennelclubcharitabletrust.org or 020 7518 6874.

Let us know

If you’ve already remembered The Kennel Club Charitable Trust in your Will, we’d love to hear from you. Not only will this help us shape our future plans, but it also gives us an opportunity to thank you properly and keep you informed of the work that we’re doing. The information you share with us will be treated as confidential and won’t be legally binding. Simply email or telephone us at fundraising@kennelclubcharitabletrust.org or 020 7518 6874.

Alternatively, you can complete a declaration form, detailing the type and approximate value of the gift you’d like to make. Whatever the size of your bequest, you can choose to designate this to a specific area of our work or mark it as an unrestricted bequest. Unrestricted funding is really important to the Trust, as this gives us the freedom and flexibility to invest your gift in the greatest area of need when we receive it.
