MORE WAYS TO MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE MONETARY DONATION
Most donations to our shelter are general donations, meaning they are used for maintaining, operating, and bettering the shelter for our animals. If you prefer, your monetary donation can be made for general use or designated for special projects.
Have a pet lover or a loved pet you'd like to acknowledge? How about sending a birthday or get well wish with a note that a gift has been made to Friends Forever in their honor? It's a great way to show your appreciation for someone while helping our cause.
One of the nicest ways to honor a loved one is to make a charitable donation in his or her name. Memorial Gifts can be made in memory of family pets as well as parents and grandparents, children and siblings, aunts and uncles, and cousins and friends.
WILL DONATIONS & ESTATE PLANNING
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.
Thank you to all of our wonderful supporters!
