Planned Giving

Making a planned gift to the League for Animal Welfare is an excellent way to ensure that your love and compassion for animals continues to benefit orphaned pets for many years to come. With your gift, the League for Animal Welfare is able to care for stray, abused and unwanted animals, along with ensuring that we can continue focusing on educating pet owners.

By planning to provide for the shelter in your asset planning, you are making a commitment to the animals. Here are several ways that you can make your planned gift:

Bequests
You can name the League for Animal Welfare and/or one of its funds as a beneficiary in your will. This ensures that your desire to support the animals is clear. You can donate a set amount or asset, a percentage of the total value of the estate or a residual bequest.

Beneficiary
Some assets, life insurance policies or certificates of deposit allow you to name a beneficiary. If these are no longer required to care for dependents, consider naming the League for Animal Welfare or one of its funds as the beneficiary.

Appreciated Stock
Gifts of appreciated stock can offer real tax benefits to the giver in the right circumstances. So check with your tax advisor on whether this planned giving option makes sense for you. We’re confident that it will make sense for our animals, now and for years to come!  View stock transfer instructions here.
