Estate Planning

Making a planned gift to the Delta Animal Shelter is a meaningful way to carry forward your compassion and concern for animals.  We would be glad to discuss any planned giving option with you – in confidence and without obligation.

Bequests are a great way to support a beloved organization. Many people would like to help but feel they cannot afford to make such a gift today. A bequest by will is a unique way to ensure that our work will continue into the future. Donors can specify a dollar amount or a percentage of assets in their will, designating a particular program at the Delta Animal Shelter or leaving the gift to be used where it is needed most at the discretion of our Board of Directors.

Beneficiary designations are another easy way to give future gifts. Simply name Delta Animal Shelter, Inc. (Tax ID 45-2725668) as the beneficiary of the account. This can be done for retirement accounts, bank accounts and life insurance policies.

If you name Delta Animal Shelter as a beneficiary of your will or account, please let us know so that we can express our appreciation for your thoughtfulness. If you would like assistance or need additional information, please contact manager Susan Gartland at 789-0230 or
