A gift to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter through your will or living trust is a powerful statement of your support for our mission: supporting animals, saving lives and spreading compassion. It may also provide a reduction in your taxable estate.
The most common planned gift is a bequest through your will or living trust. You can arrange a gift of a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or even all or part of the residuary of your estate. If you would like to make such a gift to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter, your attorney may wish to include language similar to the following:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society, now or formerly at 100 Caja del Rio Rd., Santa Fe, NM 87507, (dollar amount or __ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate), to be used for its general purposes.”
