Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a great way to ensure the Humane Society of Summit County can continue to save the lives of homeless pets for years to come. Including the HSSC in your estate planning means that vulnerable animals in our community receive the shelter, food, veterinary care, medication, and loving homes they deserve.

How do I include the Humane Society of Summit County in my estate planning?

Providing for HSSC in your estate plan can be as simple as naming the “Humane Society of Summit County” in your will or as sophisticated as creating a charitable gift annuity which would provide you with an income stream for life, helping you meet your long-term financial and philanthropic goals.

Other ways to include HSSC in your estate plans include:

  • Beneficiary Gifts: When you name the Humane Society of Summit County as the beneficiary of assets such as life insurance policies, IRAs, real estate and personal property sales, stock, and trusts, the full value transfers tax-free, reducing your and your loved ones’ tax-burden.
  • Gift Annuities and Charitable Trusts: These options provide you with income for life while investing in the future of the Humane Society of Summit County, helping you meet your long term financial and philanthropic goals.

Before you make any decision, you should consult your tax, legal, or financial advisor to help you determine the best options for you.
