Join ASI’s Legacy of Compassion Society

Your support for animals and society can continue beyond your lifetime. There are a variety of ways to make a lasting contribution toward improved human-animal relationships and safer, more compassionate communities for all.

Beneficiary Designations

Please consider designating the Animals and Society Institute as a beneficiary in your will, trust, retirement plans, and/or insurance policies. Options such as gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts may allow you to increase cash income during your lifetime, while providing the ASI with much-needed funding in years to come.


A charitable bequest is a gift of assets to a charity through a will or Revocable Living Trust. The bequest allows you to make a substantial contribution without reducing current income; it operates like a postdated check payable only after death.

Bequests can include cash, securities, real estate, houses, and personal property such as valuable collections, art, or jewelry.

There are four different ways to make a charitable bequest: specifying a percentage of the estate, a dollar amount, a specific asset, or a residue of the estate following the satisfaction of other bequests.

Planned gifts and bequests may be applied to specific programs or given as unrestricted gifts to ensure the long-term financial well-being of ASI so that we can continue our work well into the future. Your legacy is your choice.

To request more information and/or join ASI’s Legacy of Compassion Society, simply let us know that you’re interested or that you’ve already included ASI in your planned giving.

The Animals and Society Institute (ASI) is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. ASI’s tax identification number is 22-2527462.

For any planned gift, please consult your own financial advisor. For more information concerning ASI and your estate planning, please contact:
