Legacy Giving

Leave a lasting gift for future generations of deserving dogs.

Why Consider a Legacy Gift?

A legacy gift is an opportunity to ensure that the values you hold dear – love and kindness towards dogs – continue to live on. A bequeath is easy to arrange in your will and can be made for any amount you wish. A legacy gift may offer significant tax benefits for you or your heirs. You can continue to save dogs lives and support animal welfare by leaving a legacy to Adopt a Dog Save a Life Inc.

Amplify Your Impact

After your lifetime, it’s possible to make a more significant gift than you might otherwise be able to afford now.

Enjoy Tax Benefits

By including charitable gifts in your estate planning, you may eliminate significant taxes payable upon your death.

There's No Commitment

Circumstances can change. Since you are not making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind and your Will at any time.

Wills and Bequests

A Will is the easiest and most effective way to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.  A Will allows you to provide for your family and for the dogs by naming both as beneficiaries.

Making a donation to charity in your Will is called a “Bequest”. A bequest gives you the comfort and security of knowing that your assets are always available to you if and when you need them, and until you don’t need them anymore.  A charitable gift to Adopt a Dog Save a Life in your Will allows you to make a tax-effective gift, often eliminating the taxable impact on your beneficiaries.

Ways to Provide a Bequest in Your Will

When you are making out your Will, you simply name Adopt-a-Dog/Save-a-Life Inc. as a beneficiary:

  • You can leave a specific dollar amount or a specific asset to Adopt a Dog Save a Life Inc. Types of bequests can include cash, real estate, artwork etc.

  • You can give a percentage of your estate to Adopt a Dog Save a Life Inc.

  • You can provide for the needs of your loved ones and leave the remaining balance or residue of your estate to Adopt a Dog Save a Life Inc.

  • We suggest that you work with your financial advisor and lawyer to help you plan a bequest that best fits with your financial and estate situation.
