Planned Giving

Including Friends of Somerset Regional Animal Shelter (FOSRAS) in your estate planning allows you to make a profound and lasting impact on the future of our life-saving programs. It also ensures that your generous spirit will continue to help us rescue countless animals in need.

When naming FOSRAS in your will, you may leave a specific dollar amount, a set percentage of your estate, or a particular property. You can also name FOSRAS as the beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance policy, bank account, mutual fund, charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust. Each of these options may help you reduce your estate taxes.

Your attorney may wish to use the following language when making a bequest to FOSRAS:

“I give, devise, and bequeath to Friends of Somerset Regional Animal Shelter, federal tax ID number 311-814-838/000, PO Box 8073, Bridgewater, NJ 08807, the sum of $_________ [or describe the real or personal property or portion of the estate] to be used for its general purposes.”
