Sample Language for Your Will or Trust

The following language may help you and your attorney when drawing up a bequest that meets your needs.

*If you are interested in supporting a specific project or program, it is best to discuss your plans with our planned giving professionals before completing your bequest language to confirm your wishes can be met by World Animal Protection.
