Planned Giving/Bequests

You don’t need a crystal ball to know that animals will always need our help. We’ve been helping them, with the support of friends like you, since 1868. Since our founding, many generous animal-lovers have included MSPCA-Angell in their estate plans, thereby helping provide vital support so that MSPCA-Angell may have the necessary resources to carry out its mission to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

Gifts from estate plans as well as life income gifts are an important source of support for MSPCA-Angell. Although the amount received varies from year to year, on average these types of gifts represent approximately 6% of MSPCA-Angell’s annual operating budget in 2014.

If you have included, or would like more information about including, MSPCA-Angell in your estate plan, would you let us know? We would like to invite you into our Circle of Friends Society and acknowledge your thoughtful concern for the future of our organization. By providing for the animals in your own future plans, you become an essential member of our Society.
