Contributions Through Your Will
Preparing a will is sometimes an emotional and thought-provoking endeavor. Whether you have accumulated vast assets or have only a few possessions, a will prevents legal complications and delays. It directs your personal representative to deal with your estate as you wish.
Another important aspect of a will is that it allows you to provide for the animals you care about after your death. Whether this means your own companion animals or those at Almost Home, your will can continue a legacy of kindness.
If you decide to support Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio through your will, you can specify a particular amount of money or an asset such as stock or property. Consider giving the remainder or a portion of the remainder of your estate after expenses and gifts to your loved ones have been paid out.
The interest in real estate or a trust designated initially for the lifetime benefit of a loved one could be specified for a gift. Sometimes individuals prefer making a contingent gift that takes effect only under certain circumstances (e.g., “If my spouse does not survive me,”). Ask your attorney for further information.
What if you already have a will? Often you can add a bequest to Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio to your existing will simply by consulting your attorney about an amendment known as a “codicil.”
Giving through a Living Trust
If you would like to create an estate plan that allows some privacy and has additional features, a living trust may be something you wish to discuss with your attorney. A gift to the Almost Home from such a trust can be arranged upon your death, just as with a will.
When setting up your gift with your attorney please use the following designation:
Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio, Inc.
c/o Cheryl Rakich
4672 Aberdeen Ave.
Dublin, OH 43016
We are a tax exempt charitable organization 501(c)(3).
