leave a legacy

Planned gifts, also called legacy or estate gifts, are a crucial source of future funding that enables ARM to plan and carry out the best possible programs to save animals.

You don’t need a great deal of wealth to make a difference—every dollar means an extra chance for an animal in need! Remembering animals in such an enduring way is quite possibly the most powerful gift that a person can make to stop animal suffering.
