Sample Language For Planning Documents
Leave a gift in your will or trust by adding the following language to your planning documents:
I give to the SPCA of Wake County, Inc, located at 200 Petfinder Lane, Raleigh, NC, 27603, online at spcawake.org,
and federal tax identification number 56-0891732,___% of my total estate (or $_____) , designated to support SPCA Wake priorities.
