As part of your legacy, you can help to ensure that VAO is able to care of our community’s homeless dogs and cats. Consider making a gift of stock or a lifetime gift by including Voorhees Animal Orphanage in your will when it is drafted or revised.
You can designate a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a portion of the residual of your estate. You can also bequeath specific assets to VAO, including stocks, real estate, or other tangible property. Sample language is below:

Tax benefits! All bequests pass to VAO free of estate taxes and will lower the overall size of your estate for tax purposes.
