Most of Romanian animals live through a non-stop emergency situation. Today, ROLDA is concerned with alleviating their suffering and saving lives. But we must think about the years to come, as well.
Looking ahead, your legacy could mean the capability not just to respond to emergencies but also to educate people and to change the culture that allows so many animal atrocities to happen. Your legacy could reduce the emergencies. Permanently.
A gift in your Will to ROLDA ensures 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. Make a gift in your Will and join us on this complex but essential mission.

Why I’ve left a gift in my will
The inspiring commitment of Helen to a safer future for animals in need.
Helen was born in Adelaide in October 1938, but her ancestors were from Scotland. Helen was a brilliant and savvy person, years ahead of her time, and an avid animal lover who would dedicate her life to a beautiful cause.
Helen’s goal was to leave as much of her life savings as possible to those who help animals in need. She became very frugal, making her and her husband’s clothes and doing her own DIY.
She was truly dedicated to making the world a better place for suffering animals. Sadly Helen passed away in Jan 2021 and we were honored to be notified of Helen’s intention to leave a generous gift to ROLDA.
Her dedication to animal lives on in our tireless work to rescue abused and abandoned stray dogs in Romania.
ROLDA UK and types of wills
If you would like to remember ROLDA UK in your Will, there are three main types of gift you can make:

is the gift of a particular sum of money.
is the gift of a specified item that could be for example; property, a painting or a piece of jewellery.

Leave a lasting legacy and benefit your estate at the same time
There can be sound financial reasons why it makes sense to leave a legacy to ROLDA UK in your Will.
If you own your own house, this could well mean that the value of your Estate will be above the Inheritance Tax threshold.
You may be able to considerably reduce the amount of tax your estate pays on your death – or even remove it altogether.
As a general rule:
Gifts to registered charities are wholly exempt from Inheritance Tax (IHT)
If you leave all of your Estate to charities, no Inheritance Tax (IHT) will be paid from your Estate at all and if you choose to leave part of your Estate to relatives and friends, you can reduce the Inheritance Tax payable by also making a bequest to a registered charity. Our tax reference (Gift Aid) number EW65805
What’s more, a further incentive to charitable giving is stating that if you choose to leave 10% or more of your Estate to charity, your Estate will benefit from a cut in the actual rate of Inheritance Tax payable.
Specifically, anyone leaving 10% or more of their estate to charity will have their inheritance tax rate reduced from 40% to 36% from April 2012.
ROLDA UK and Remember a Charity
For ROLDA, legacies represent a safe future but it can be a difficult subject to raise with supporters because of its sensitive nature.
It made sense to join Remember A Charity because by enabling charities to come together as one voice, it gives us a bigger platform for talking about legacies.
Make a REAL gesture towards a SAFE tomorrow for animals!
Animals give you a better life. You can leave them with a better world

What if I change my mind?
However, once you have made a Will, the original contents can be changed or added to by means of a Codicil and will not involve re writing your Will. The Codicil has to be signed and witnessed in the same way as the Will itself, although the witnesses do not have to be the same. The Codicil must be kept with, but not affixed to, your Will.
