How Can I Donate a Gift in My Will?
Many generous and kind-hearted animal lovers have asked us this question before so we wanted to add a note about in our website. We hope you will find the information helpful and encourage you to contact us if you would like to discuss various options.
Your Will and Your Charitable Interests
Statistics show that about 70 percent of the adults in this country do not have a valid will. Those without wills are passing up the chance to distribute their estate according to their wishes, rather than those of the state.
A will can provide many ways for you to benefit your local shelter, as well as your church, schools, and other worthy organizations. For example, you can leave your local Humane Society a percentage of your estate after your family has been taken care of. Or you can designate that a specific amount, or piece of property, be given to the humane society. Memorial gifts, as well as charitable trusts that generate income for your surviving spouse and other family members, are also commonly included in a properly drawn will.
There are many ways to make a significant gift to our shelter while also protecting your estate for your family and other organizations. Let us know how we can help.
Please call Friends Forever Humane Society at 815-232-6164 to request more information about giving to Friends Forever through your will.
