Charitable Bequests

Charitable Bequests from your will combine philanthropy and tax benefits. Charitable Bequests are gifts that are made as part of a will or trust.

A bequest can be to a person, or it can be a charitable bequest to a nonprofit organization, trust or foundation. Anyone can make a bequest—in any amount—to an individual or charity.  You can help make a difference and provide for hundreds of dogs now and into the future by naming AKITA ANGELS in your will or Trust. And because Akita Angels is a non-profit charitable organization recognized under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service Code, your tax savings resulting from a Charitable Bequest to Akita Angels can be substantial. You can specify that your Bequest is a specific dollar amount or a percentage (%) of your Estate. You may also add the following paragraph to your Will or Trust:

"I hereby give, devise, and bequeath $___ (indicate the dollar amount) or ___% (indicate the percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to Akita Angels, an IRS-approved 501(c)3 non-profit Public Charity, P.O. Box 221353, Santa Clarita, CA 91322, www.akitaangels.org"
