In your will you specify who you would like to take care of after death, usually family members or other loved ones. Maybe you want to support the causes that were important to you? For example you can donate part of your estate to animal welfare.
To include the Dutch Gorilla Foundation in your will is something very special. The reasons for doing so are many. Maybe you had a special encounter with a mountain gorilla during a gorilla tracking, or you give your legacy to nature for another reason.
Your money will help us in our goal to ensure the conservation and restoration of the gorilla populations and their habitat in Central Africa. This way your legacy will help to make a difference for the gorillas and to give them a future.
In your will you can specify your charitable donation to the Dutch Gorilla Foundation. This donation is free of inheritance tax. This means that even if the amount left seems small it will benefit the gorillas in the wild for the full 100%.
You can designate an heir or record a bequest in your will. You can also choose to appoint the Dutch Gorilla Foundation as a primary or secondary heir. In your bequest you can specify how much of your legacy you would like to reserve for the Dutch Gorilla Foundation.
