Remember OCSPCA in your will or trust
If you wish to leave a gift to the OCSPCA in a revocable trust or will, it is important that you provide your estate planning attorney with the correct information to identify our organization.
Proper identification in your testamentary document will ensure that your gift will be distributed to the OCSPCA to help animals in need in Orange County, California. Since the OCSPCA is a 501(c)(3) organization, all gifts made to the OCSPCA through your trust or will qualify as a charitable deduction for your estate on your death.
It is important to note that the Orange County SPCA is not affiliated with any other SPCA or national organization. We are a local group serving the residents of Orange County. There is no national SPCA, parent or sister chapters; each group is a separate entity. Many people confuse local SPCA’s such as ourselves with nationally recognized groups that advertise on TV like the New York based ASPCA. When you donate to the ASPCA the money generally stays in New York. The ASPCA does incredible work but the animals in our local community need your support. We encourage people to make their donations count by giving to an Orange County charity.
To ensure that your money is distributed to the Orange County SPCA, you should include the following information in your trust or will:
Legal Name: Orange County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
Address: P.O. Box 6507, Huntington Beach, CA 92615
We suggest that you discuss other ways you can make gifts to the Orange County SPCA with your estate planning attorney that may better benefit your tax and planning goals. You may also wish to designate the OCSPCA as the charitable beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, donor advised fund, irrevocable trust, or gift annuity.
Please contact our office at (714) 964-4445 if you wish to speak with our estate planning counsel further about how you can benefit the Orange County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in your gift planning.
