A tribute to Avril Shepherd

April 6th 1935 – April 24th 2022

Avril Shepherd, wife of the late David Shepherd, was an extraordinary family matriarch, who enabled much of David’s success as both an artist and conservationist.  Avril worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure David’s work, clients and Foundation were looked after with grace, kindness and quiet determination.

Whilst Avril dazzled internationally at prestigious art galleries and events alongside David, she was just as much at home in nature and the wilderness of Africa. She was a fierce advocate in her own unwavering way for conservation and for all those who fought for the places and species she loved.

To make a gift in memory of Avril and support the wildlife that she so dearly loved, please fill in your details below.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you.

A Gift Aid declaration allows David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking this box I confirm that I want to gift aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past four years to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. I am a UK taxpayer and I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year, it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
