Legacy Giving

Leaving a gift to the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) in your will is a wonderful way to express your love for animals as part of your legacy. Planned giving through a will enables your goals and dreams to continue beyond your lifetime.

Without a will, after your death, your property will be distributed by the laws of your state—without regard for your personal wishes. Planned giving through a will ensures that your estate will benefit the people and causes you value most.

We’d like to provide some guidance on how to get you started by providing our SNAP Legacy Giving brochure here which provides information that may help you prepare your will so that you can ensure that your giving priorities are honored.

We realize that your financial and estate plans are private and personal and that a bequest is an important decision. When writing or revising your will, please consider including a gift for SNAP.

The information might help inform your legacy planning:
