A few thoughts on good deeds

Supporting a non-profit institution through consideration in the will is a close to heart matter and should nevertheless be considered carefully.

If you want to do something for the cause of animals and for species and nature conservation Görlitz Nature Conservation Zoo can be the ideal addressee. The orientation of a legacy in the will helps the zoo to achieve its goals of bringing animals and nature closer to humans and to act as ambassadors for the conservation of animals and their habitats.

Görlitz Nature Conservation Zoo is using the inheritances to renovate the zoo. The zoo relies on private support so that the plans for species-appropriate husbandry can be realized. Of course it is primarily the person giving the gift who decides on the use of his donation. However, it is advantageous if the intended purpose is only determined after consultation with the zoo director.

Inheritances to Görlitz Zoo are exempt from tax.

For further information please contact the zoo director (+49 3581-66 93 000, Dr. Sven Hammer). We would also be happy to help you with the appropriate legal advice when drafting your will.
