Wills & Living Trusts

Remembering San Diego Humane Society in your will or trust is one of the most meaningful gifts you can give.

It will make a lasting impact on our mission of saving the lives of animals in our community. In addition to leaving a lasting legacy to San Diego Humane Society you will also reduce the burden of taxes on your family and receive an estate tax charitable deduction.

A gift through your will or trust can be made in several ways. You can make a gift of a specific asset or dollar amount, you can make a gift of a percentage of your estate or you can make a gift from the balance of your estate.

We also recommend you provide for your pet(s) in your will or trust. San Diego Humane Society can take your animals or you can name San Diego Humane Society as a backup in case the family members or friends you named are unable or unwilling to act.

For more information on how you can include San Diego Humane Society in your estate plans or to learn more about our Pet Guardian Program, please contact us.

We are happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have. If you do choose to include San Diego Humane Society as a gift recipient in your will, trust, retirement accounts or life insurance accounts, please let us know, as we would like to recognize you for your generosity.
