Planned Giving Opportunities





How to maximize giving and create a living legacy at
Helen Woodward Animal Center

One of the simplest ways to make a planned gift to Helen Woodward Animal Center is to make a bequest in your will, if you already have a will, your lawyer can usually add a codicil to include the Center. Giving through a bequest lowers your federal estate taxes because the assets donated to the Center are deducted before the estate tax is calculated.

Many friends of the Center who choose to make a bequest also arrange to entrust their pet(s) to the care of the Center after their passing. Please read our Pet Bequest Policy, below, for more information.
