A bequest to ROLDA,Inc. = A safe tomorrow
for animals in Romania!

Romanian animals live through a non-stop emergency situation. Today, ROLDA is concerned with alleviating their suffering and saving lives, but we have to think about the years to come, too. Looking ahead means to have the capability to respond to emergencies, promote a change in people’s mentality, educate the new generations in a respect culture, making our work on the ground more effective. Time, skills, effort and patience will be spent for many years into the future in order to give the animals a chance to live peacefully in their present time. With a testamentary bequest you can join us on this long journey.

HOW CAN YOU HELP

Your bequest can be a specific sum, an estate percentage, or what remains of your estate after you have specified gifts to loved ones and covered expenses. Bequests may consist of money, stocks, real estate, and/or personal property such as valuable art or jewelry.

TESTAMENTARY TRUST

The main benefits of Testamentary Trusts are their ability to protect assets and to reduce tax paid by beneficiaries from income earned from the inheritance and created by a Will. It helps provide a greater level of control over the assets of the Will.
A Testamentary Trust does not come into effect until after the death of the person making the Will. At this time, the specified deceased estate property is transferred to a trustee, who holds the assets on trust for the benefit of the beneficiaries.
If you are responsible for administering a Testamentary Trust, you should consider seeking expert legal advice, from a lawyer that deals with and has great experience in the area of Testamentary Trusts.

FAQ’s

If I include ROLDA in my Will do I need to let you know?

It is your decision; however by letting us know about your gift you will help us plan better for the future. If you would like to let us know of your decision to include ROLDA in your Will, please email us at info@rolda.org.au

Can I say where I want my gift to be used?

Legacies provide ROLDA with vital funds for long-term planning and development. Leaving a legacy to a specific type of work or location might mean that we cannot fulfill your wishes if we are no longer doing that specific work or in a specific area in the future. Keeping your gift for general purposes enables ROLDA to use it where the need is the greatest at the time.

Do I need assistance to write a Will?

We suggest you use the services of a solicitor or trustee company to ensure your Will is legally sound. A solicitor can also advise you on matters such as guardians, asset valuation and power of attorney.

What are correct wording for my Will?

How do I prepare my Will?

The most vital part of having a Will is to ensure it is valid. So it’s a good idea to seek legal advice. Having a solicitor or trustee company assist you in writing your Will can help ensure the required legal processes are followed, in line with your wishes. When writing your Will it’s important that you consider the needs of your family and dependents, and let them know about decisions that affect them – including if you decide to leave a gift to ROLDA.

Can my gift be confidential?

Of course – all information you give to us is strictly confidential. Any information supplied to ROLDA is protected by the Privacy Policy which can be viewed on ROLDA website www.rolda.org.au/privacy-policy/

How can I be sure my money will reach the children who need it?

All donations to ROLDA go directly to where they are needed most, to protect the most abused, sick and vulnerable animals but also the environment (e.g. protect the virgin forests against illegal logging). This is ROLDA’s commitment to our donors and to the animals that need our support. Administration and fundraising costs are kept to an absolute minimum.

When is the right time to write a Will?

If you do not have a Will, it is advisable to write one as soon as possible. It is also important to update your Will when your circumstances change – for example if you get married, have children or buy property.

How do I leave a gift to ROLDA in my Will?

Leaving a gift to ROLDA in your Will is a way that you can make a life-changing difference for tomorrow’s dogs (or other abused animals) and realize your vision for a better world. If you include ROLDA in your Will, it is important to ensure that the wording is legally correct. You may want to talk to your solicitor or trustee, as well as one of ROLDA team member.

Why is having a Will so important?

Everyone should have a Will. It ensures that the distribution of your assets is carried out in the way you want and provides for the people and issues you care about.
