What Is a "Planned Gift"?

Planned Gifts can come in many forms, but they all share a common characteristic in that DRBC's use of the gift is deferred in your lifetime. Please read and participate in the options provided for planned giving. Your gift can make a difference today and in the years to come.

You can make a more significant gift to DRBC than you ever thought possible, while maximizing the financial and tax benefits to you, your estate, and your family. A planned gift is one of the most effective ways to ensure that the DRBC can carry on its mission of saving animals’ lives far into the future.
