You can establish a trust from which you and/or other beneficiaries receive annual payments of a fixed dollar amount for life and /or a term of years, after which the remainder of the trust assets pass to the Animals & Society Institute. 

Charitable Lead Trusts

A charitable lead trust makes an annual payment to the Animals & Society Institute for a period of years, and at the end of the term, the remaining assets go to your family or other beneficiary.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund allows you to make a tax-deductible gift to the Animals & Society Institute to establish a fund today and later advise ASI on how you would like the gift used. At least half the gift must be designated to ASI and the rest may support other charities.
