The Animal Welfare Society Legacy Society

Individuals planning to support the efforts of the Animal Welfare Society beyond their lifetimes are treasured members of our Legacy Society.

Once you have provided for the people you love, you may wish to consider a charitable bequest to benefit the animals. You may choose to list the Animal Welfare Society as a direct beneficiary of a set amount of money, a specific asset, or a percentage of your estate. You may designate that your bequest be used for general purposes or to support a specific program or need.

Our suggested language for a general bequest:

“I give and bequeath to the Animal Welfare Society, a not-for-profit corporation, with its principal offices presently located at Holland Road, Kennebunk, Maine, the sum of $_______________, to be used for the accomplishment of its mission.”

If you plan to make a charitable bequest, please think it through carefully. Then, meet with your attorney to discuss and update your will.

If you’d like to share your decision with us or learn more about your planned giving options, please contact us.
