Planned Giving

What is Charitable Planned Giving?

Planned Giving refers to a process of making a charitable gift of your assets to HSNT; a gift that requires consideration and planning in light of your overall estate plan. The gift can be made while you are alive or after you pass through a bequest.



A donor may include a provision in his or her will or living trust to make a specific bequest to the Humane Society of North Texas.


Charitable Trusts and Charitable Reminder Trusts

Under the right circumstances, this plan can increase income, reduce taxes and create a legacy for the shelter with tax planning and distribution provisions in your trust.  Please consult your tax or legal adviser to establish a trust.


Life Insurance

A donor may wish to name the Humane Society of North Texas as a beneficiary of an existing insurance policy or create further life insurance benefits to the donor and HSNT by working with your insurance provider.


Retirement Plans

A donor may name HSNT as a beneficiary of a 401K retirement plan or IRA with simple changes to his/her beneficiary designation.


Real Estate

Your gift of a vacation home, a primary residence, land or other real estate property will help HSNT's lifesaving efforts.

To Make a Gift

Always work with your attorney or financial planner to create the best possible legacy gift.
