Leave a gift in your will

We are very proud of what we do here. It’s a tough job and it’s not cheap but we all believe in it, as do the people who have helped us with gifts and donations to the project over the years.

Leaving the charity a gift in your will is one of those ways that you can make a difference. We have made some key improvements (monkey enclosure, lion house improvements, bear enclosure developments, amongst many other important projects) thanks to people’s generosity, and their legacy is a lasting contribution to the work we do in conservation, education and well being through nature.

We are grateful for any size gift – from contributing to the animal enrichment, to helping us to bring our buildings up to date – every gift goes towards the same vision: “To inspire and empower people to achieve a future in which no species faces extinction through human action”.

We have proudly partnered with McClure Solicitors to provide legal services such as FREE Will Writing, a FREE Will Review service and a special Price Power of Attorney Service.

Leaving a gift made easy: mention Dartmoor Zoo and McClure will provide you with a will, completely free of charge. McClure ensure the charity you support does not pay, nor do you, to ensure everyone benefits from the situation.  This is because over 50% of their clients will go on to use their other services, which enables them to offer free services.

Already have a will and looking to update it? McClure will offer you a free will review to ensure that your assets go exactly where you want them to when you pass. If you would like to find out more about McClure will reviews please click here.

McClure can also prepare your lasting Power of Attorney at a special price of £199. Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document which appoints someone to act for you if you become unable to make decision or manage your affairs. One in three of us will die with dementia, and Lasting Power of Attorney ensures your family can do whats best for you. McClure will also donate £30 to your chosen charity.
