Estate and Planned Giving
Including the Arizona Humane Society in your final giving plans allows you to enjoy the benefits of a gift to charity while making a powerful statement about your love of animals.
Remembering the Arizona Humane Society in your Will, Trust or other estate plans allows us to help hundreds of thousands of animals through our leading-edge programs and services. The Legacy Circle is our special way of recognizing those whose planned gifts ensure a healthy financial future for our organization and the homeless pets in our care. Legacy Circle gifts are so special because they truly ensure the future of the Arizona Humane Society and thousands of animals in need.
How can I join the Legacy Circle?
There are many ways to benefit AHS as you make final giving plans:
- Name the Arizona Humane Society as a beneficiary in a Will or Living Trust
- Make a gift of cash or appreciated securities to establish a charitable gift annuity with the Arizona Humane Society
- Create a charitable remainder trust (CRT) and name the Arizona Humane Society as the beneficiary
- Name the Arizona Humane Society as the beneficiary of a paid life insurance policy or a retirement account
To include the Arizona Humane Society in your plans, you will need the following information:
Legal Name: Arizona Humane Society
Legal Address: 1521 West Dobbins Road, Phoenix, AZ 85041
Federal Tax ID: 86-0135567
Type of Organization: 501(c)(3) nonprofit
We hope you’ll consider becoming a member of our Legacy Circle. In doing so, you become eligible to participate in our Continuing Care Program, which provides lifetime care for your pets if you predecease them. Additionally, we will be honored to list your name on our Legacy Circle donor wall at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion (unless you wish to remain anonymous) and you will be invited to our annual donor recognition event.
Please download our Statement of Testamentary Provision, complete as much or as little of the information as you feel comfortable with, and return it to the Arizona Humane Society at the address above. While this form is not required or legally binding, it helps us to plan and to understand how you’d like to be recognized.
What happens to your pets after you are gone? Such uncertainty can weigh heavily on your mind, but the Arizona Humane Society’s Continuing Care Program allows you to rest easy knowing your pets will be cared for and loved.
A special benefit of membership in the Legacy Circle is enrollment of your pets in our Continuing Care program. We’re pleased to make this program available to help Legacy Circle members plan for their animal companions’ futures. Pets who are enrolled in the program and have owners who predecease them are placed with new forever families that are carefully selected by our staff. Continuing Care is one of the best and most simple ways of planning ahead for animal companions who depend on you for care.

We are proud to honor our Legacy Circle members, and are so very grateful to those whose realized gifts make possible so many of our life-saving programs and services for animals.
