Leave a Legacy of Love


You can make a difference.

A legacy gift to Open Door Animal Sanctuary is a powerful statement of your support for our mission. A gift of any size will help protect the future of thousands of unwanted and homeless cats and dogs who count on Open Door for help. Every adult, no matter your age or your net worth, needs an estate plan.  An estate plan is comprised of one or more documents such as a will, trust and/or beneficiary designation form that control who will pay your final expenses and distribute your assets according to your wishes.

What will your legacy be?

Open Door is the voice of unwanted cats and dogs, and your legacy gift will provide us with the financial stability and flexibility to continue our work on their behalf. You can select from among many charitable gift giving strategies to achieve your philanthropic goals and create your legacy. It is important for you to explore these strategies as charitable gift giving is also a powerful tax savings tool.

Join the Open Door Legacy Society.

The Open Door Animal Sanctuary Legacy Society honors individuals who have made legacy gift commitments. No gift is too small and when you inform us of your planned gift intentions, you become a member of our Legacy Society, which allows us to recognize you appropriately for your generosity and dedication to our cats and dogs. As a member of the Legacy Society, you will receive special mailings, invitations to events – often with discounts, recognition in our quarterly newsletter and annual report, and inclusion of your name on our website as a Legacy Society member. You will also be recognized at our annual Founder’s Circle Donor Appreciation Dinner.
