Think of us when you do your estate planning
We appreciate the generosity of our supporters each and every day. Some have asked how they can continue the support when they are no longer with us. Of course you should consult with your own attorney to make these arrangements, but below you will see samples of language to give your attorney if you wish to to provide a legacy or bequest to MetroWest Humane Society, Inc.
Unrestricted BequestI bequeath to the MetroWest Humane Society, Inc. located at 30 Pond Street, Ashland, Massachusetts, with a mailing address of P. O. Box 1068, Framingham, Massachusetts 01701, the sum of $_________________ or ___________ percent of my residuary estate; [or give an accurate description of securities, real estate or other property which you want to give to be used for the general purposes of MWHS].
Restricted BequestI bequeath to the MetroWest Humane Society, Inc., located at 30 Pond Street, Ashland, Massachusetts, with a mailing address of P. O. Box 1068, Framingham, Massachusetts 01701, the sum of $__________________ or _________ percent of my residuary estate; [or give an accurate description of securities, real estate or other property which you want to give. This gift shall be used for ____________________________________ (here describe in broad general terms the desired purpose or division of your property)].
Escape ClauseIn the case of a restricted gift it is generally wise to include an “escape clause” so that your gift can continue to be useful to the MWHS if conditions change in a way that would nullify or make impractical the original purpose of your gift. Suggested wording is: “If, in the opinion of the President of the MWHS and the Board of Directors, all or part of the remainder of this bequest cannot be usefully applied to the above purpose, they may use the same for any purpose within the general corporate powers of the Society which in their opinion will most nearly accomplish my wishes and purposes."
Animal Care ProvisionIn return for the humane care, relocation and resolution of any animal belonging to me at my death, I hereby bequeath a gift or additional gift to the MetroWest Humane Society, Inc. located at 30 Pond Street, Ashland, Massachusetts, with a mailing address of P. O. Box 1068, Framingham, Massachusetts 01701 [here describe the details of the gift and any specific desire for the animal(s)].
