The Easiest Way to Make an Impact
 
A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
 
Interested in helping the Humane Society of St. Lucie with our mission, but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, know as a charitable bequest.
 
A bequest can easily be included in your will. You can leave a percentage of your estate, a fixed amount, the remainder of your estate after your heirs are provided for, or even an amount contingent on whom you are survived by.
 
By including the Humane Society of St. Lucie in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue to save lives for years to come. Your gift also entitles you to a federal estate tax charitable deduction and membership in the Humane Soceity's Legacy Circle.
 
Sample bequest language: "I wish to leave (amount or percentage) to the Humane Society of St. Lucie County of Fort Pierce, FL to be used for its tax-exempt purposes."
 
If you have already included the Humane Society of St. Lucie County in your estate and have not notified us, please contact David Lynch, Director of Marketing & Community Outreach, at 772-801-8564 or dlynch@hsslc.org. We welcome the opportunity to include you in the Humane Society's Legacy Circle. Or, if you prefer, we will respect your wishes to remain anonymous.
