Are You Willing To Leave A Legacy of Kindness?

A planned gift is an opportunity to ensure that the values you hold dear continue to live on in a legacy of love and kindness.  Planned gifts can be made by naming the SPCA Serving Erie County as a beneficiary in wills, insurance policies, IRAs, and more.  Without these types of gifts, we could not fulfill our mission.

Why Consider a Planned Gift?

1. You’ll have a more significant impact on our work. Your planned gift can help us to provide care and comfort for a greater number of animals, and people.

2. You’ll inspire others to give. In leading by example, you’ll influence your family, friends and colleagues to do the same.

3. It’s simple to do. Just name the Erie County SPCA in your will, or other planned giving vehicle, and we will reap the rewards of your generosity.
