Have You Planned Your Giving Legacy?

Your will is one of the most important documents you can own. It dictates how your assets and possessions will be divided after your lifetime. It ensures your loved ones are financially protected. It provides peace of mind for your family.

A will is also the first step in creating your legacy.

Use Your Will to Give

In addition to caring for loved ones, you can also use your will to extend your support of the organizations and places you care about most. This gift is simple to make—all it takes is one sentence. You can also update your wishes as life changes to ensure your will meets your needs. Plus, a gift in your will doesn’t require you to part with assets today, but it still allows you to make a big impact on our work.

To make this gift:

1. Contact the Development Office to request sample language to use when making your gift.

2. Make an appointment with your estate planning attorney to create your will. If you already have a will, your attorney can draft an addendum to add your gift to the existing document.

3. Notify us of your intention. It would be our honor to thank you. Plus, your generosity may even inspire others to follow in your footsteps. (Wishes of anonymity will be honored, of course.)

Create Your Legacy

When you include a gift to Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County in your will, you create a legacy of giving and ensure we can continue our work well into the future. Contact the Development Office at development@thehumanesociety.org or 253.284.5814 to get started.
