Wills, Bequests & Estate Gifts

Establish a Legacy of Caring

Will or Estate Plan Contribution

A bequest through your will or estate plan leaves a legacy of caring for the animals and people we serve. A Helen Kinau Wilder Legacy Society gift can include sponsorship of park benches, stepping stones and places around the shelter and in our gardens. Need language for your will or trust?

Life Insurance Policy Beneficiary

Gifts of a life insurance policy or proceeds of a policy that are no longer needed to protect a loved one can also be an excellent way to give. You may be able to use life insurance to “replace” assets you donate to charity, allowing you to provide for your loved ones and your charitable interests.

Charitable Remainder Trust

A gift that provides you with immediate tax savings along with generous lifetime payments, such as a charitable remainder trust, can be another way to give while maintaining or enhancing financial security.
