How to Give Your Time or Donations to SGVHS

Planned Giving

SGVHS is a nonprofit animal shelter that relies on individual donations, grants and other similar sources of funds.

Your love of animals can live on in a 

PLANNED GIVING PROGRAM if you make a gift to the SGVHS in your will or living trust.  There are many benefits of this type of gift:

  • Flexibility:  You can make changes in your will at any time as you and your family’s  needs change.
  • Versatility:  You can leave a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate or a gift of property.
  • Future Benefit:  You know your gift will benefit the shelter tomorrow based on your wishes of today.
  • Tax Relief:  Your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for its full value.

Please contact your accountant or attorney to assist you with your charitable request.
