Wills and Bequests
Bequest is a term used to describe a gift that you are leaving to the SPCA Animal Rescue through your will. Such gifts are vitally important to the League’s ongoing work. There are several ways you can make a bequest to the SPCA Animal Rescue:
- Specific bequest, where you leave a specific amount or percentage of your estate to the League.
- Residual bequest, where the League will receive the remainder of your estate after you have provided for your loved ones.
- Contingent bequest, where all or a portion of your estate is left to the League only in the event of the prior death of certain named individuals.
