LEAVE A LEGACY THAT PROVIDES CARE FOR ANIMALS – Beneficiary Bequest And Planned Gifting

Whether estate planning, considering year-end giving, or honoring or remembering a beloved pet or person, you create the legacies of tomorrow... today.

Each year, AWS has been the beneficiary of generous bequests and planned gifts. These contributions are the result of generosity of supporters like you who have made a life commitment to our mission. We are so grateful to these individuals and to those who will continue this legacy of caring.

Here are five possibilities for you to consider.

• BEQUEST BY WILL

Giving a bequest through your will is an easy and direct way to leave a legacy. You can state a certain dollar amount or choose to specify a percentage of your estate. At your death, a charitable deduction will be available to your estate in calculating estate tax due.

• GIFT OF CASH OR SECURITIES

An outright gift of cash or securities is the simplest way of making a gift to the Animal Welfare Society.

• LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES

If you have life insurance that you no longer need to protect you or your family, you may gift the policy to the Animal Welfare Society.

• RETIREMENT PLAN ASSETS

You may acquire particular tax advantages by naming the Animal Welfare Society a primary or contingent beneficiary on all or a portion of your RPA accounts.

• CHARITABLE TRUSTS

Your assets can provide a steady stream of payments to you, with the trust assets transferred to the Animal Welfare Society at your death or at any earlier time you specify. These trusts can provide an immediate income tax deduction.
