Gifts in Wills

The help you give to Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful in your lifetime is invaluable – but you can also make Northern Ireland a better place for many years into the future by leaving a gift in your Will.

One gift can last long into the future by helping to making a difference for everyone living in, working in and visiting Northern Ireland. Action needs to be taken at a local level to improve littering, discarded rubbish and dog mess.

Your gift can help to tackle the root causes of littering, fly tipping and graffiti, change hearts and minds so that people make the effort to recycle and cut their energy use and make Northern Ireland into a place that people will love to live and visit.

Alone we cannot make the difference. Working together we cannot fail.

Despite a cleaning bill of £43 million every year, litter blights 97% of our streets. We have a great responsibility to look after Northern Ireland. Let’s use bins, take litter home and recycle waste.

We all want to see positive changes to where we live. With your help, this campaign will grow the number of people willing to play a part. We’d all like cleaner streets, less dog fouling and graffiti, more green space and better use of unused and derelict buildings. Through Live Here Love Here we can all do one small thing to help to make a big difference in our communities.

National Trust Northern Ireland
Long Business Description:

National Trust Northern Ireland

What we do

The National Trust was founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of the nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy.   We have been active in the protection of our natural, built and cultural heritage in Northern Ireland since 1936, where we now care for coastlines, forests, woods, fens, mountains, beaches, farmland, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, nature reserves, villages, historic houses, gardens, mills and pubs. We do it because open space, nature and heritage are important to all our lives.  They provide an escape, a chance to relax and enjoy many memorable experiences.

Gifts in Wills

In Northern Ireland three out of four of our properties cannot fund their own conservation.  We only receive public funding to assist us with our conservation work, through competitive application; and our membership fees simply aren’t enough to cover our ongoing costs.  We therefore depend on legacies to help us to protect and maintain the future of the unique landscapes and special places we all cherish. In Northern Ireland, the Trust provides access to 174km (22%) of the coastline and 12,000 hectares (120 sq. km) of scenic countryside incorporating iconic sites such as Slieve Donard (our highest mountain), the Giant’s Causeway (our first World Heritage Site) and Strangford Lough (our first Marine Conservation Zone),  232 Listed buildings, 52 Industrial heritage sites and 23 outdoor/ public access sites..

RSPB NI

We are totally committed to education projects introducing children to nature and encouraging better health and wellbeing by engaging with, learning about and respecting the environment and creatures we share our lives with. We should all be able to have a favourite outdoor place, a forest, river, park or beach, somewhere we feel free and uplifted. From breath taking landscapes to intimate moments with wildlife, we work to create magical experiences for you.

Our aim is simple and sure, it’s to inspire everyone to give nature a home so our towns, coastline and countryside will teem with life once again.

Gifts in Wills

Legacies are a lifeline for nature. They are vitally important in helping us protect wild places and vulnerable species. A gift left in your will lets us plan for the future and ensure wildlife prospers for generations to come.

Our work is crucial to the survival of endangered species and habitats. We work in partnership with the local farming community to secure a step change in sustainable land use practice, good for farmers, for nature and communities. At the same time, we actively encourage children and families to give nature a home in gardens and parks with plants and insects to attract wildlife.

Our work is Northern Ireland is made possible by the generosity of our donors, members, volunteers and supporters. We are so grateful for each and every gift no matter how large or small.  That’s your legacy to ensure precious wildlife always has a home – from the butterflies that flutter through our parks, to the bees that set our wild meadows buzzing to the garden birds joyous in song, that brighten our day.

Ulster Wildlife

Long Business Description:

Ulster Wildlife

What we do

Ulster Wildlife is a local nature conservation charity that champions native wildlife. We work with local people to secure space for nature in our countryside, towns, coastlines and seas.

We work tirelessly to deliver practical nature conservation projects on land and sea, to educate the next generation of wildlife supporters and to maintain a network of precious nature reserves. Our 18 nature reserves provide a home for a huge range of threatened animals, birds and plants such as red squirrels, barn owls and wild orchids, in an increasingly hostile wider landscape.  Over the last 100 years we have already lost so many wildlife-rich woods, wetlands, valuable peatland and wildflower meadows. Without champions to stand up for nature it is most probable that much more could be lost.

Nature doesn’t have its own voice but Ulster Wildlife is here to ensure that it is heard by our local decision makers.

Ulster Wildlife stands up for nature and for the precious wild places and wildlife we all love.

Gifts in Wills

Our work to ensure that nature matters here in Northern Ireland is not possible without the generosity of our donors and supporters. Over the years many of our members and supporters have remembered us in their Will.

Our local wildlife is a gift that should be passed on to future generations. Once family and friends have been cared for, you can make Northern Ireland’s wildlife your legacy by leaving Ulster Wildlife a gift in your Will.

Gifts in Wills have already helped us:

  • Provide vital protection for local wildlife, landscapes and endangered species such as the barn owl
  • Manage our network of nature reserves across Northern Ireland
  • Run events to educated and inspire schools, communities and individuals to care for nature
  • Engage and support volunteers in helping to conserve local landscapes

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.
