Leave a legacy

"The zoo is an icon, representing its many worldwide conservation projects, working hard to protect wildlife in its natural habitat, forever, for us all to enjoy, wherever we may be.” 

Mr & Mrs Lambert, lifetime supporters of the Bristol Zoological Society.

As a charity, Bristol Zoological Society relies on the generosity of individuals to continue its important conservation work. Future gifts in Wills are a fantastic way to help. 

By leaving a gift in your Will, you will be supporting our excellent conservation and education work, and potentially helping us to save a species from extinction.  

Leaving a legacy gift to Bristol Zoological Society ‘for general purposes’, means the Society can use it where the conservation need is greatest, which could be a considerable number of years after the Will is made.  

We would advise against being too specific in order to guard against future problems. For example, if a legacy gift is left for a specific project that has already been carried out, we may not be able to make use of your gift. However, if you would like to leave a legacy gift to a particular area of Bristol Zoological Society, please include the words “but without imposing a binding obligation” in your Will.

Memorial Donations

A memorial donation is a fitting way to remember a special person whilst helping their favourite cause. If you would like to leave a gift in memorial or make a donation, such as in lieu of flowers, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your options and supply donation envelopes.
