How you can help

"No donkeys, no happiness, Know donkeys, know happiness"


Your donation contributes towards the donkeys' ongoing needs. There are no wages paid or salaried staff as all the work and care is undertaken by volunteers. Our expenses include essential purchases and visits from veterinarians, goods providers, stores, feed merchants and professional health/medical services that cannot be undertaken by volunteers.  We also pay for machinery to assist with burial and for transporters who deliver loads of hay, straw and chaff supplies.

Your generous donation is an excellent way to support the hundreds of donkeys for whom we provide. There are dozens of daily requirements used and supplies must be replenished.

Making a Bequest in your Will

Donkey Welfare With Heart Inc. would appreciate a statement in your will, leaving a gift from your estate, such as cash or property.

Your bequest can ensure that donkeys are never forgotten and receive the love and care they all deserve.

Donkeys are totally dependent on the goodwill and kindness of humans. This makes them extremely vulnerable in a world where humans cause harm to innocent donkeys leaving charities like DWWH to care for them.

If you already have a will you can simply add a clause, known as a codicil, to your existing will and include Donkey Welfare With Heart Inc according to your wishes.

Suggested wording to help you and your solicitor.

"I give (please specify amount), percentage or share of estate or other, free of all duties and deductions to:

Donkey Welfare With Heart Inc,
600 Wollombi Road,
Bishops Bridge NSW 2326

for its work in caring for and providing for donkeys and I direct that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of DWWH Inc shall be a good and sufficient discharge to my trustee(s).
