When you have completed your estate plan, naming Pasadena Humane in your will or trust, or as a beneficiary of your IRA, life insurance or other account, please let us know so that we can include you in our 1903 Society—those generous donors who will be making a difference for homeless animals in years to come through their planned gifts.

Benefits include invitations to special events, a 10% discount in our Shelter Shop, our Pet Guardianship Program, and more! Just complete and return our 1903 Society form to let us know.

Or simply contact us so that we can note your plans to ensure that your wishes are carried out as you intend.

What to Give

What to Give
  • Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
    Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to our organization.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to our organization.
  • Gifts of Retirement Assets
    Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift to our organization.
  • Gifts of Insurance
    A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to charity. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.
  • Gifts of Cash
    A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift.
