Donating to Animal Sanctuaries in San Diego With Planned Giving

Have you ever wondered how you can continue to help the animals of Lions Tigers & Bears even after you're gone? Planned gifts, also known as legacy gifts or estate gifts, can help Lions Tigers & Bears continue to provide quality lifetime care to our rescued animals. The most common forms of planned giving are gifts donated through your will, bequest, or trust.
 
There are many ways to create a legacy while helping us to continue our mission. If you already have a will or trust, you can normally add or increase a charitable bequest with a simple one page amendment. And of course, no federal estate taxes will be due on the value of the bequest.
