Gifts made to Born Free USA through long-term financial and estate planning options help to ensure our work to prevent animal suffering can continue. One of the easiest ways to add significantly to resources for the animals is to become part of our Legacy Circle. Our Peace of Mind brochure can help you get started and provides you with suggestions and general information including Monthly Giving, Specific Bequests (Wills/Trusts), Stocks or Other Property Donations, Life Insurance Policies, and Retirement Plans.
No matter how small you believe your estate to be, there are definite advantages to including Born Free USA as a beneficiary. Your heirs may be able to avoid costly estate taxes. People whose financial constraints, such as a fixed income, make them unable to give regular donations as generously as they wish, are often able to realize a major gift through their estate.
And perhaps most appealing is the idea that, as part of the Legacy Circle, your love of animals will live on for future generations. These gifts are a wonderful way to help animals as part of your legacy to the world.
We strongly suggest that you consult an attorney who specializes in estate planning. Your attorney should also advise you about the importance of updating your will regularly, as an out-of-date will is often no better than the absence of a will.
