How To Leave A Legacy Through Planned Giving
There will always be a need for a safe place for Washington County's stray, abandoned, and homeless animals.
A final gift to the Washington County SPCA through your estate planning is the best way to ensure that your support for our mission continues after you are gone.
When designating the Washington County SPCA in your estate plans,
be sure to use our full name,
"Washington County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals".
This will avoid any confusion over where your gift should go.
You can even use our IRS Tax ID to further avoid confusion (#73-6107239).
There are several options to leave a final gift to the WCSPCA. Please speak to your attorney, CPA, or financial advisor for more options that are open to you.
Here is a list to give a few ideas:
1. Include the WCSPCA as a beneficiary to your life insurance policy.
2. Include the WCSPCA as a beneficiary to your 401k, IRA, or other retirement plan.
3. Outline a gift to the WCSPCA in your living trust, estate plan, or will.
You can designate exactly how you want your final gift to the WCSPCA to be spent by the organization.
1. Endowment- the principal of your gift can never be spent
2. Capital Improvements or New Capital Projects
3. Operating Expenses
4. Unrestricted - the board of the WCSPCA can decide how to best use your gift for the organization's needs
Finally, please let us know if you have included the WCSPCA in your estate planning. We would love to show our gratitude!
