As part of your estate plans, consider a future gift to Olympic Peninsula Humane Society (OPHS) and carry on your commitment to helping animals on the North Olympic Peninsula. Including OPHS in your estate plans will allow us to plan for the future. Thank you in advance for considering a long-term gift as part of your legacy.

A bequest – a gift in your will or trust – allows us to continue OPHS’s important role to provide shelter, care, and love for animals-in-need in our area. Your planned gift will help us to continue to offer our programs of adoption and to find caring owners and loving homes for the over 1,500 animals that come through our doors every year. Your gift will also ensure every animal that leaves OPHS receives a  spay/neuter – to reduce the population of unwanted animals.


Olympic Peninsula Humane Society can be designated as a beneficiary by simply adding the information on any of the following assets:

  • Life insurance
  • 401(k) or 403(b) employer retirement plans
  • Individual retirement accounts (IRA)
  • Commercial annuities
  • Brokerage accounts

We hope you will consider making a donation to OPHS in your will or living trust.

A charitable bequest offers the following main benefits:

  • Flexibility: Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
  • Versatility: You can structure the gift contingent on certain events or leave a percentage of your estate to OPHS.
  • Tax relief: If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value. Please contact your tax advisor for more information.

Please help us to continue your love and caring for needy animals by making a planned gift to OPHS. For more information on charitable giving, please contact your tax advisor, attorney or call us at (360) 457-8206.
