Leave A Legacy

Leave Your Legacy

Legacy giving or planned giving is a powerful way to help La Plata County Humane Society continue it’s mission and helps make advances in our life-saving programs. The impact of a planned gift truly makes a difference in the lives of so many animals. We ask you to consider making a lasting contribution for the future benefit of pets in need.

“Planned giving” is a charitable gift that is arranged in the present for a future allocation date. A donor can decide to leave assets to La Plata County Humane Society in his or her Will, commonly refereed to as a “Bequest”. Other planned gifts can be made through trusts, retirement plans (IRA) or  life insurance policies. A donor may also designate their estate and will receive a charitable estate tax deduction at his or her death, when the gift is made.

A planned gift can be:

  • A gift or “bequest” from your Will or Trust.
  • Naming La Plata County Humane Society as a beneficiary of your Retirement Plan (IRA), Life Insurance Plan Policy, Savings, Checking or Brokerage accounts.
  • Designating your estate to La Plata County Humane Society.

Each individual’s financial situation is unique. We recommend that you consult your financial adviser to help you include La Plata County Humane Society in your estate planning. If you or your financial advisor seek additional details, please contact Michelle Featheringill, Executive Director at (970) 385-4765 or michelle@lpchumanesociety.org.
