Planned Giving

A.D.O.P.T. (Animals Deserving Of Proper Treatment) was founded in 1989 by a group of generous volunteers determined to find homes for animals in need.  Over the decades, our objective has remained the same:  to place animals into permanent, caring homes and advance the humane treatment of animals through education.

We are a private, "no-kill", non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and receive no funding from the goverment.  Your bequest, a gift from the heart, guarantees that our life-saving work continues.  Planned gifts are an important source of support in builing a sound future for the organization.

Although bequests are the simplest and most popular form of planned gifts, your gift can consist of almost anything -- money, bank accounts, life insurance policies, securities, works of art or real estate. 

Suggested language for wills

This language creates an unrestricted gift, which is especially valued since it is difficult today to anticipate the future needs of A.D.O.P.T.  If you have a particular use in mind for your gift, we welcome the opportunity to work with you and your attorney on specific language to assure your gift will be used as you intend.  If you would like to remember A.D.O.P.T. in your will, you can do so by using the following language:

I hereby give, devise and bequeath unto A.D.O.P.T. (Animals Deserving Of Proper Treatment), 420 Industrial Drive, Naperville, IL 60563, a non profit corporation, (the sum of $______) or (____% of my estate) or (the fllowing stock and bonds______) or (specific items of property) or (the rest, residue and remainder of my estate).  This gift may be used to further the mission objectives of A.D.O.P.T. as the Board of Directors of A.D.O.P.T. may direct.

The full legal name of A.D.O.P.T. is:
Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment
420 Industrial Drive
Naperville, IL 60563
Our federal tax ID number is 36-3683984.

As with any important financial decision, you should contact your accountant or attorney for complete information and tax implications.
