Join The Dutchess County SPCA Legacy Society and ensure a loving future for the animals.

Animals bring us so much joy during our lifetimes. A bequest is one way to ensure a loving, joyful future for the animals who depend on the Dutchess County SPCA.  Legacy Society members care deeply about animals and want to make sure The Dutchess County SPCA can continue its life-saving work for generations to come.  All it takes is a quick phone call to your lawyer to add a charitable gift for the animals at the Dutchess County SPCA to your will.  For more information about making a Planned Gift, please see our Guide to Planned Giving.

Individuals who make a commitment to The Dutchess County SPCA’s future through a planned gift or bequest are invited to join The DCSPCA Legacy Society. Legacy Society members have named The Dutchess County SPCA, Inc. in their wills, qualified retirement plans, life insurance policies, trusts or pooled life income funds. The DCSPCA can accept gifts of real estate, stock and other assets as well.

Your planned gift or bequest puts you in good company today. Tomorrow, your legacy will be multiplied with gifts from other individuals and families to give hope to the homeless, abandoned and abused animals for generations to come. Legacy Society members receive many special benefits. If you desire, your name will be placed on DCSPCA Legacy Society written materials and on our website. You will also receive invitations to special events, a copy of our annual report and recognition within the annual report. You may also choose to remain anonymous.

When the time is right for you to include a gift in your will for the animals, please remember The Dutchess County SPCA, Inc. We would be happy to discuss Legacy Society membership with you and your advisor.  For more information about making a Planned Gift, please see our Guide to Planned Giving.
