Legacy of Love Society

There will be many moments in life when you ask yourself: What do I stand for?

The Legacy of Love Society is a truly special community of generous individuals who have chosen to leave a lasting impact on the lives of animals by including Animal Friends Alliance in their estate plans. By doing so via a bequest, charitable trust, or other giving options—you’re crafting a legacy that speaks of kindness and care for generations. Not only does this act of generosity benefit countless animals, but it may also provide tax advantages that can benefit your loved ones. Join us in creating a better future for animals and ensuring your support endures through the Legacy of Love Society. Designating Animal Friends Alliance as your beneficiary usually costs nothing during your lifetime and can easily be revoked if your circumstances change.

To discuss how you can remember animals in your plans, please email PlannedGiving@savinganimalstoday.org or call Director of Philanthropy, Amanda Schroeder, at (970) 484-8516, extension 1116.

For their remarkable commitment to helping vulnerable animals and people, and their decision to help our world keep growing kinder and more loving, we are grateful for our Legacy of Love Society Members.

Let us know your intentions

Thank for considering naming the Alliance as the beneficiary to your estate and committing to a brighter future for animals in need. This letter signifies your intention to make a bequest through your estate plan. 

Plan For the future

Including Animal Friends Alliance in your long-term charitable planning is a powerful way to establish your personal legacy. When you make a planned or legacy gift to us, you can trust that it will go on to help homeless and at-risk animals for years to come. Doing so is typically a simple process. We have partnered with Life Legacy to make it easy to navigate your estate planning needs all in one place.

Pet Survivorship Program
Supporters of Animal Friends Alliance who choose to make charitable contributions by bequest to the organization also ask about the possibility of entrusting their cat(s) and/or dog(s) to the care of the organization after their death. Learn more about our Pet Survivorship Program here.
