Planned Giving

Making a planned gift to Open Door is an excellent way to ensure that your love and compassion for animals continues to benefit homeless pets for many years to come. We appreciate your gifts to support and strengthen Open Door’s many excellent programs.

By structuring future gifts with tax benefits and income opportunities in mind, you may be able to achieve some additional financial goals as well. Several options for giving are listed below to help you plan for your personal needs:

  • Bequests through your will
  • Life Insurance Gifts: Make ODAS the beneficiary of a life insurance policy
  • Retirement Plans: Donate interest in an IRA or other qualified savings plan

Consulting an attorney who specializes in estate planning is recommended and will help guide you through this process. If you include Open Door in your planned giving or have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Tracie, at Tracie@odas.org or call (636) 671-3643.
