Planned Giving

House Rabbit Society Angels

The House Rabbit Society Angels is a special group of House Rabbit Society friends who have remembered HRS in their estate plan. These generous friends have made their gifts through bequests, retirement plans, or life insurance policies. Your estate plan gift will help build a strong heritage for HRS and ensure that we can continue our important rescue and educational work for generations to come.

House Rabbit Society Angels gifts to House Rabbit Society can be made in two ways: bequests through wills and trusts, and through retirement plans and life insurance policies.

Wills and Trusts

Bequests of all sizes are welcome. You may make a bequest of cash, securities, or real estate by designating a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a particular asset. A bequest is simple to arrange in consultation with your legal advisor. It is a revocable arrangement, enabling you to make alterations as your circumstances change. Moreover, a bequest to HRS will qualify your estate for an estate tax deduction as allowable by law.

Sample Will Provision

"I give (____ dollars), (_____ percent of the residue of my estate) or (a specific asset) to House Rabbit Society."

Please be sure to speak with your estate planner or legal advisor to answer any questions you may have.

Life Insurance Policies

You may name House Rabbit Society as the beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other retirement plan or your life insurance policy. Such a gift is easy to arrange with help from your tax advisors.

Many people cannot donate as much as they might like to HRS at this time, but through remembering HRS in your estate plans, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you can contribute to the future of this organization.
