Planned Giving

There are a variety of ways to make a lasting contribution toward a better world and ensuring an end to violence for future human and non-human animals.

You may designate Animals and Society Institute as a beneficiary in your will, trust, retirement plan, 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 used as unrestricted gifts to ensure the long-term financial well-being of ASI.

For any planned gift, please consult your own financial advisor. For more information concerning your estate planning and ASI, please contact Linda Huebner, Executive Director, at (802) 789-0988 or via email at
