Make an estate gift

There are several ways to make an estate gift which will help care for the thousands of animals that become homeless or are abused in our community.  The following are brief descriptions of ways of giving and the Animal Humane Society’s policies regarding designating the purpose of a gift.  For more details, including a "build your gift planner" please visit our Estate and Planned Giving Pages.

Legacy Circle

Animals give unconditional love, affection and friendship to us every day.  For many of us they have played a vital role in enriching our lives.  By including Animal Humane Society in your estate planning, you help enrich the lives of so many others by supporting our efforts to provide shelter, adoption and humane investigation services to the animals in our community.

Stock gifts

Make a gift of appreciated stock

Making a gift of appreciated stock can benefit you as well as the animals. Donating stock you’ve held for more than 12 months avoids capital gains taxes on the increase in the stock’s value and allows you to receive its full, fair market value on the date of the gift.

This is an excellent vehicle for stock that has appreciated substantially in value. Proceeds from the sale of your donated stock will be used by the Animal Humane Society to care for the animals.
