Donations and Legacies

If you would like to make a donation to help support our work with animal rescue and welfare charities, you can send a cheque payable to ‘The Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust’ to our office address or make a donation direct into our bank account. Details are below.

Any donations will be gratefully received and you can be sure that they will be used for the benefit of animals.

In order that we can acknowledge your donation please provide us with your name and address or email.  We do not share personal information with any other organisation and we will not send you leaflets, promotional material or any other requests for financial support.

The Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust derives its income from the funds bequeathed to it by Jean Sainsbury, Joseph Shuman and a number of other benefactors. If you would like to remember the JSAWT in your will and leave money to provide us with future income for the benefit of animals,  you should name the ‘Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust Registered Charity Number 326358, or any successor charity’ in your will.


We will recognise larger donations on our website if desired and if you have any questions concerning donations or legacies, please contact our administrator by email or in writing:
