Planned Giving

Leaving a legacy for animals by making a planned gift to People For Animals helps ensure the most effective agenda for positive change. People For Animals is a non-profit organization with a solid record of fiscal responsibility and animal-advocacy achievements since 1986.  Gifts to a 501(c)(3) charity typically have tax-deductible benefits. You do not need to have a large estate to make a bequest or other planned gift to People For Animals. Anyone who owns property should prepare a will and keep it in a known location.

Types of gifts

Wills or Living Trust Bequests

You may make a bequest to People For Animals by preparing a new will or adding a codicil to your present will. Through your will, you can ensure some or all of your assets will come to People for Animals. You may arrange for People for Animals to receive:

     1.  A specific dollar amount,
     2.  Specified assets, such as securities, real estate, or tangible personal property, and
     3.  All or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after all other obligations are met (a residuary bequest).

The most useful bequest is an unrestricted bequest for the general purposes of People For Animals. This permits People For Animals to use your gift wherever it is most needed at the time.

Important Note: If you do specify a use for your bequest, the following language will ensure that your gift will always remain productive: “If at any time in the judgment of the Trustees of People for Animals the designated use of this bequest is no longer practicable or appropriate, then the Trustees shall use the bequest to further the general purposes of People for Animals, Inc., giving consideration, where possible, to my special interest as described above.”

Gifts of Retirement Plans

To give a gift of a retirement plan - IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Keogh or other qualified retirement plan - simply name People for Animals as a beneficiary on your plan’s beneficiary designation form.

Gifts Through Life Insurance

By making a gift through life insurance, you may be able to make a larger gift than you thought possible, while retaining other assets for your needs or those of your family. There are three ways to do this:

  • 1.  Name People for Animals as the beneficiary of your policy,
  • 2.  Donate your policy to People for Animals, or
  • 3.  Use your policy proceeds to fund a life-income gift.
