Remember the HSDC in your will
Many people have made bequests to HSDC, making its future more secure. Charitable gifts made by bequest are not taxed as part of your estate.
There are several ways to make a bequest to HSDC:
A fixed amount of money or specific property such as stocks, bonds, or real estate.
A percentage of your estate.
A contingent bequest, naming the HSDC as the recipient should another beneficiary not survive you.
A residual bequest, leaving a portion or the entire remainder of your estate to the HSDC after all else has been settled.
A life income bequest, paying income to a person of your choice for his or her lifetime after your death, with the principal donated to the HSDC at the death of your beneficiaries.
Whichever type of bequest you choose, we suggest the following language to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding:
“I hereby give and bequeath to the Humane Society of Delaware County, a nonprofit Ohio corporation located at 4920 St Rt 37 East, Delaware Ohio, 43015 Tax I.D. #31-0956829, the sum of $XXXXX to be used for its general purposes.”
For a gift other than cash, simply describe the assets.

Located inside Richwood Bank, 1512 W William St, Delaware, customers and non-customers of the bank can donate money and designate the HSDC to receive the funds. The HSDC was selected by the family of Joy McAfee Lea, a treasured Richwood Associate Branch Manager who passed away in 2016 after a courageous 8 year battle against breast cancer. In 2017, Richwood Coffee generously donated $3,980 to the HSDC!
