Your Gift is Your Legacy

"The only thing you take with you when you’re gone is what you leave behind." - John Allston

For so many of us, our love and compassion for animals is part of our identity. The companionship and joy that animals provide us in return make our lives complete. Our bond defines us. It makes us who we are.

When we pass, our lives become legacies. For animal lovers, a most profound way to write your legacy – to tell the story of you – is to include the Women’s Humane Society in your Last Will and Testament.

As America’s First Animal Shelter, the Women’s Humane Society has a long history of dedicated supporters who have generously bequeathed to us a portion of their estates, or who have set up permanent Trusts in our name, ensuring that their gifts continue to make a difference in the lives of animals for future generations.

Gifts of bequest to the Women’s Humane Society leave a lasting legacy – one written on the grateful hearts of the countless animals given a chance to live, to be loved and to love in return.

To arrange a bequest from your Will or Trust, please contact your estate planning attorney to create or amend the necessary documents. You or your legal counsel may also contact our Development Office at 215.942.6823 or for more information.
