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.
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 plans include naming the Humane Society of Summit County as the beneficiary of real estate , IRAs, insurance policies, personal property, stock, and trusts.
Besides helping you meet philanthropic goals, Planned Giving may also provide you with significant benefits such as capital gains tax savings, increased cash flow, or reduced estate taxes.
Before you make any decision, you should consult your tax, legal, or financial advisor to help you determine the best options for you.
Please contact our President/CEO Diane Johnson at (234) 212-9708 or firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions or requests regarding your Planned Gift or to notify us of your intentions.
