Legacy Giving

Do you wish you could make a significant difference for animals’ in-need? Consider making a planned gift, such as a bequest in your will, to help animals without affecting your current income.

Legacy gifts allow us to help animals today, and to plan for tomorrow.

Making a Legacy Gift

A legacy gift is your living monument. Your planned gift can improve the lives of animals long into the future.

By making a legacy gift, such as a bequest in your will, you have the opportunity to help animals without affecting your current income. You could leave a gift in your will or add Toronto Humane Society as a beneficiary to your life insurance policy, RRSP, RRIF or securities. Whichever gift you chose, you will be supporting animals in-need.

Getting Started

The first step is planning. You may wish to work with a lawyer, financial advisor or both to develop an estate plan that reflects your wishes. If you already have a will, these professionals can work with you to update it to reflect your desire to help animals in-need.

If you aren’t ready to talk to a lawyer or financial advisor, try this online will-making service.

It’s lawyer-approved, simple and all online.

Planning for Your Pet

Don’t forget your own pet. Where will your pet go if something happens to you?

No one wants to imagine their pet being homeless with no one to care for them. But in life, unexpected events can happen, leaving your pet without a caregiver. Do you have a plan for your pet, should they outlive you? Read our Planning For Your Pet’s Future newsletter to find out how to best prepare your pet for long-term success in your absence.
