Through planned giving, you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of pets who lose their humans to death, disability, or deployment for years to come.
The Forever Home Society honors those who have included The Pet Cottage in their estate plans, it is because of this thoughtful commitment by pet lovers that we will have a secure future for our pets.
Through a provision in your will, you can gift The Pet Cottage a percentage or a specific amount of money from your estate. These gifts, known as bequests, are the simplest and most common planned giving vehicles. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.
The language to include The Pet Cottage as a beneficiary of a charitable gift through your estate (will) is as follows: “I give (x dollars/ x percent or all of the residue of my estate) to The Pet Cottage, Inc. organizing and existing under the laws of the state of Florida, and with a principal business address of P. O. Box 8395, Jupiter, Florida, 33468. TAX-ID # 47-4011633
Most assets pass to your intended beneficiaries by the terms of your will. However, other assets, such as retirement plans (401Ks and IRAs, etc) and life insurance are not controlled by the terms of your will and can easily be designated to The Pet Cottage simply by filling out a “change of beneficiary form” provided by your plans administrator.
