Legacy and Estate Planning
Sustain the future of non-surgical fertility control
We recognize that you have many options when it comes to helping animals. Because ACC&D works to reshape the future for cats and dogs through advancements in non-surgical fertility control, we hope that you remember ACC&D when you think about your legacy. Including ACC&D in your planned giving means that that you can count on ACC&D to continue to work for long-term systemic change that will improve the lives of cats and dogs all over the globe.
Planned giving comes in many forms. One of the simplest ways to provide for ACC&D in your estate plan can be to simply make a bequest in you will. You can also include ACC&D as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement fund, or other investments. While we have provided sample language (below) for informational purposes, there are many considerations to take into account when deciding which option to choose, therefore, you should consult an attorney or financial advisor when deciding the best choice for your financial situation.
Sample Language for Monetary Gifts
Unrestricted Gift - A gift that can be used where need is greatest:
”I give to the Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs, a non-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation, Federal Identification Number 41-2185841, headquartered in Portland, OR, the sum of $_______* for its general purposes.”
* Rather than leaving a sum certain, you can include language that refers to a percentage of your estate or a description of the property you wish to give.
