Create Your Legacy
A planned gift to The Fund for Animals is a gift to the future that gives you peace of mind today and gives animals in need the promise of hope for a loving, secure future. Cleveland Amory, our late founder and president, left his entire estate in trust to The Fund.
Together, we can ensure that the vision you and The Fund for Animals share lives on.
Let us work with you and your advisors to help plan your gift to the future. Here are two of the more tried and true ways to create a legacy for the uncertain times in which we live.
Annuities: The gift that gives back.
A Fund for Animals charitable gift annuity is a gift that pays you back—through the joy of giving, and in real dollars.
In exchange for your gift of cash or securities, The Fund for Animals provides a guaranteed life-long stream of fixed payments for you, your survivor, or another loved one named by you.
Charitable gift annuities also provide a charitable income tax deduction in the tax year of your gift plus five additional tax years for any carry-forward of unused deductions.
A Fund for Animals charitable gift annuity offers tremendous benefits. Let us help you make the most of this mutually rewarding way to provide for your future—as well as the future of the animals.
Bequests: "Where there's a will, there's a way."
As Cleveland Amory once said, "Where there's a will, there's a way." And a bequest to The Fund for Animals is the simplest and surest way to provide a secure future for animals in need.
Your gift may take several forms we can help provide samples of charitable bequest language for you and your attorney to review together.
We will work with you so that your charitable intentions benefit you, your loved ones, and the mission of The Fund for Animals.
Many people underestimate the true value of their estates or don't consider themselves "wealthy." And sadly, some who give so generously throughout their lives neglect this wonderful opportunity to make a difference.
Perhaps by using a "hidden asset" you thought was of little value, we could help you create an enduring legacy. No matter how large or small, every gift is precious to the animals who The Fund for Animals protects. Your will truly can make a difference. Thank you!
