The Animal Welfare Society Legacy Society

As a member of the Legacy Society, you become a part of a growing number of caring individuals who have planned to support the efforts of the Animal Welfare Society beyond their lifetimes. Benefits of being a part of the AWS Legacy Society include an invitation to our annual Legacy Luncheon and a special AWS Legacy lapel pin that you can proudly display.

Once you have provided for the people you love through your will, you may wish to consider a charitable bequest to the Animal Welfare Society. There are numerous ways to do this. You can 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.

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.
