A Powerful Act of Love

Years from now, your estate gift can be your most powerful act of love.

Did you know that bequests and other planned donations are the largest, most life-saving gifts Tabby’s Place receives each year? We depend on these selfless acts of love for our survival. Including Tabby’s Place in your plans today will mean life and hope for the cats of tomorrow.

Ways to Give

There are many ways to design a charitable bequest in your will or trust agreement. These may include:

  • A specific bequest, which provides to Tabby’s Place a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate, or piece of property.
  • A contingent bequest, which provides to Tabby’s Place all or a portion of your estate if circumstances make it impossible to carry out your primary provisions (as when your spouse or other heirs do not survive you).
  • A residual bequest, which provides to Tabby’s Place all or a percentage of your estate after all other bequests, debts, taxes, and expenses have been distributed.

You can also make Tabby’s Place a beneficiary of all or a portion of an insurance policy or IRA.

You might discuss these options and others with your attorney as you prepare to update your will or your beneficiary designations.
