Adding a gift to charity in your Will offers each of us the opportunity to contribute to good causes in a way that may not be possible during our lifetime.

Some gifts in Wills are relatively modest, some substantial – every one helps. Below is just a small selection of areas where a gift in your Will could help.

Safeguard the future of our beautiful landscapes

One of the largest conservation projects in Europe, the Coigach – Assynt Living Landscape aims to improve and reconnect habitats (especially native woodlands) and foster rural employment in one of the most remote parts of the UK.

A gift in your Will could help safeguard the future of this vast and beautiful landscape for generations to come.

Continue the fight to save Scotland's Red Squirrels

Fifty years ago, the red squirrel was a common sight in Scotland. But today the red squirrel needs your help, particularly to combat the threat of squirrelpox, a deadly virus that kills almost 100% of the red squirrels it comes into contact with.

A gift in your Will could help the Scottish Wildlife Trust continue the fight to Save Scotland’s Red Squirrels.

Develop and realise pioneering projects

In 2009, the Scottish Wildlife Trust played a lead role in bringing beavers back to Scotland for the first time in 400 years. Once seen throughout Scotland, beavers were hunted to extinction in the 16th Century, leaving a gap in the ecosystem.

A gift in your Will could help the Trust develop and realise pioneering projects like the Scottish Beaver Trial in the future.
