Planned Giving

Include NEADS in your estate plans through a will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or life income gift to join the Kendrick Legacy Fund, named for the first NEADS service dog who paved the way for all others ... and whose legacy continues to lead the way.

Gifts to our planned giving program enable us to continue our goal of helping others help themselves through the use of our unparalleled canine assistants.

Everyone has the capacity to leave a legacy, regardless of income.

NEADS is totally reliant on private donations, and for future expansion we also depend on the personal benefaction of friends who support our mission in a number of ways. You can donate a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the assets in your will, stock options, annuity or even land. Please contact your financial advisor for guidance on how to include NEADS in your will.

Through the generosity of bequests, NEADS will continue to thrive well into the future. Friends of NEADS continue to support our vision with generous gifts that come after a donor's death. You may make a bequest using a will, trust, retirement assets, or life insurance. Whatever way you choose to include NEADS in your own estate plans, please let us know so that you will become a member of the Kendrick Legacy Fund. Please consult your attorney for the best way to include NEADS in your bequest.

If you're over 70, you can use your IRA to make a gift to NEADS...tax free! There are many different ways you can use tax advantages to make a planned gift.
