Making a bequest is simple
One of the most popular ways to make a legacy is through including PAWS Atlanta in your will or living trust.
This type of gift offers the following advantages:
- Easy. Making a bequest is as simple as inserting a few sentences into your will. The official bequest language for PAWS Atlanta to share with your attorney is: “I, [name], of [city, state ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to PAWS Atlanta, Inc. [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its use and purpose.”
- Flexible. Wills are not written in stone and can be changed at any time. With a bequest, you are not actually making a gift until your death. Until then, you are free to alter your plans, eliminating the worry that you might make a commitment you could later regret.
- Tax-wise. Aside from the pure joy achieved by leaving meaningful gifts to animals, making a bequest to a charitable organization has valuable tax benefits. Your estate is entitled to an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction for bequests to qualified charitable organizations.
We hope you'll consider including a gift to PAWS Atlanta in your will or living trust. Please contact Suzie Sloan to learn more about arranging a gift that makes a lasting impact for homeless animals while meeting your personal financial goals.
