Beyond the contributions you may donate on a regular basis, you may have given some thought to leaving a favorite organization a bequest in your will. A distribution of assets from your estate to a charitable organization is called a charitable bequest. There are different types of bequests and each requires the use of very specific language in order to assure that your assets are precisely directed according to your wishes.


Those of us who love animals do whatever we can to better their condition, whether it is on behalf of wild animals by helping to preserve habitat and raise awareness, or by supporting a local shelter for homeless companion animals, or just by doing the best we can to rescue and protect our own. Some of the more fortunate among us may also be able to give to non-profit organizations to further their efforts. If you donate or are considering a donation to help animals, you should know that there are guidelines to follow when choosing where to give.

  • Donate cash or securities as a monthly giver or by making a special gift.
  • Make a bequest to World Animal Foundation, Inc. in your will or living trust.
  • Establish a charitable gift annuity using cash, real estate, or securities.
  • Make a gift of life insurance by naming World Animal Foundation, Inc. as a beneficiary, or transferring a policy to WAF.
  • Donate property.
  • In addition to helping WAF help animals, your gift to World Animal Foundation may generate significant tax benefits for you.
