Information for Executors
We're extremely grateful for the gifts that people leave us in their Wills. Over half of our work with animals today is funded by gifts like this.
If you are administering the estate of someone who has remembered the RSPCA in their Will, here's some information that we hope you'll find helpful.
Getting in touch
If you're acting on behalf of someone who has passed away and has left a gift in their Will - whether to the National RSPCA or a specific Branch - please get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com or telephoning our legacy income team on 0300 123 0417.
Paying a legacy
In order to assist you in administering the kind gifts left to us in Wills, there are some details we'll need from you:
- Full name and address of the person who has left us the gift
- Date of death
- A copy of the Will
- A list of assets and liabilities in the estate (if the gift is a share of an estate).
Please provide this information before making a payment by bank transfer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning our legacy income team on 0300 123 0417.
By bank transfer:
Our preferred method of payment is via Bank Transfer. Please find the RSPCA's Bank Account details below:

Note: Please use the surname or the reference number of the person who has left us the gift if you have received correspondence from us. This will help us to match your payment with the legacy and enable us to provide you with a formal receipt.
Transfer of USD or Euro:
