If you have a family member, friend or beloved pet whose life has been touched by The Chautauqua County Humane Society, we hope you'll consider making a gift to us in honor of that person or pet.

Any charitable gift you arrange can be made in honor of someone. Consider these two basic methods of establishing an honorary gift.

A gift today—An outright gift can help fund our immediate needs or an upcoming project. The financial benefits include an income tax deduction and possible elimination of capital gains tax.

A gift through your will—You can include a bequest in your will, stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount or—more commonly—a percentage of your estate will pass to us at your death in honor of your loved one.

Depending on the nature of your gift, there are a variety of ways we can recognize your generosity. Please call 716-665-2209 ext 203 for more information.
