A Legacy that Lives Forever


The simplest way to leave your legacy is through a bequest or commitment made through your Will to be distributed by your estate after passing.


A bequest may be a specific piece of property, sum of money, or a portion of your estate. Most people make a bequest when their Wills are drawn. A bequest to Nashville Humane Association may result in significant tax savings.


  • Wills
  • Life insurance policies
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Charitable Trusts


Your gift will ensure that your caring spirit lives on supporting the needs of future generations of puppies, kittens, dogs and cats who come to the Nashville Humane Association in search of a forever home.


The decision to include the Nashville Humane Association in your will means your legacy of love will continue for years to come, helping to end animal homelessness and providing needed care to animals of all shapes, sizes, types.
There are a number of different options for people who are interested in planned giving to Nashville Humane Association. If you wish, Nashville Humane Association will work with your estate or tax advisers to explore these options.


If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer needed to provide for dependents, consider making NHA the beneficiary.


Other options include making NHA the beneficiary or owner of a paid-up policy. Some assets, such as IRAs, Keogh Plans, and other qualified retirement plans, do not pass directly through your will and require you to name a beneficiary. In those instances you can consider making NHA a full or partial beneficiary. Please consult with your tax or estate advisor about these options.
