Create A Legacy Of Love

You can create a lasting legacy of love at the West Suburban Humane Society.

Yes, even if you aren’t wealthy.

 Yes, even if you’re young and don’t have a will yet.

Yes, even if you’re not sure how much you’ll leave behind.

Making a planned gift is a way to tell your loved ones and your community what is important to you, and what you want your life to stand for.

Charitable bequests and gifts of stock or property allow the humane society to build on our history of exceptional animal care. These gifts purchase food, pay for heat in winter and cooling in summer, and keep a snug roof over the heads of our animals as they wait for their loving, forever homes.

There are many reasons to include the West Suburban Humane Society in your estate plans, and you don’t have to anticipate leaving a large fortune to do so. Even a small bequest honors your love for animals while benefitting the shelter, and qualifies you for membership in our Legacy Society. Your contribution will be recognized at the shelter on our Legacy Wall, in our newsletter and at Legacy Society events.
