Thanks to you, animals everywhere have a brighter future!

As you know, over 50 years ago IFAW was started by a small group of passionate people who refused to watch animals suffer. Thanks to the generosity and compassion of supporters like you, IFAW grew to protect animals around the world. And as we celebrate our 50th anniversary and successes so far, now is the time to act to ensure animals continue to be protected in the future. I can assure you, a gift to IFAW in your Will or other financial plans would do exactly that – help create a world where animals and people thrive together.

That’s the future we want to see and the future animals deserve. It’s no exaggeration to say that any gift you make – large or small – could be enough to protect animals and the places they call home, in years to come. In fact, of every five animals IFAW helps, one will have been saved thanks to the kindness, generosity and foresight of people who left gifts in their Wills. 

Create a legacy of hope for animals, people, and the place we call home.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we’re asking you to help create a legacy of hope for future generations.
