LEAVE A LEGACY
Leaving a legacy in your will to Flower Valley Conservation Trust (FVCT) is a generous and lasting gift. It will ensure your wishes will be met for generations to come. Even though it costs you nothing now, it could give you the satisfaction of knowing that your future gift will live on and has the potential to leave a lasting legacy – in protecting fynbos, the animals that live in fynbos, and the livelihoods that depend on fynbos.
You can make the Flower Valley Conservation Trust a beneficiary in your will by bequeathing cash, shares or any other form of property. The full rand value of charitable gifts in your Will is tax deductible and can reduce your estate duty liability significantly. Leaving a legacy is easy – simply draw up a new Will or add a codicil to an existing Will. See suggested wording below.
WHY DO I NEED TO MAKE A WILL?
Wills are an important way to look after the future of people you care about. Making a Will ensures that your loved ones are provided for as you intended and that your wishes are respected after you have passed away. If you don’t have a valid Will, the courts have to administer your affairs after you die. This can cause delays and anxiety for families and friends, and your affairs may not be handled as you would like.
Once family and friends have been taken care of, then here’s how you can leave your legacy to benefit those that live in and off the fynbos…
I (name) bequeath (the residue of my estate, or percentage of my estate, or a certain amount, etc.) to Flower Valley Conservation Trust, registration no 083-402 NPO, of 44 Villiers Street, Bredasdorp, to be used at the sole discretion of Flower Valley Conservation Trust for the work of the said Organisation in South Africa.

Once you have drawn up your will please inform us that you have benefited the Flower Valley Conservation Trust in your will. We would greatly appreciate it as having this information helps us to plan for the future.
It is possible to look after your own family while still improving the lives of others.
