Planned Giving

Bequests

Bequest Information

Effectively create a lasting impact by planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave. A bequest (making a gift in your will or living trust) can guarantee that your legacy endures and can significantly reduce the taxes otherwise payable by your estate (cash, securities, or real estate). Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

Leaving a bequest is one of the easiest ways to give. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to Little Angels Service Dogs as part of your estate plan. This type of giving can benefit any fund or program you wish.

Once you have included us in your plan, please consider filling out the form below to let us know so we can thank you and welcome you into our Legacy Society. 

If you have any questions, please contact our Legacy Society Chair, Donna Lopez, at donna@littleangelssd.org
