Leave Your Legacy
Connect your love of animals with the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital to leave your legacy. Legacy gifts are a way to manage your affairs, plan for the future, and make a meaningful difference. It is also a way to honor your pet’s caregivers.
Smart legacy gift planning has many benefits such as increased income, reduced taxes, and a chance to see your gift at work. Different types of assets can be gifted, including real estate, stock, retirement assets, and more. You can add the veterinary hospital to your will, revocable living trust, or as a beneficiary designation anytime, and you can also specify when and where you want your gift to be used.
Your legacy gift could:
- Save a beloved animal’s life from cancer
- Make school more affordable for a student
- Diagnose a patient to start treatment sooner
- Provide care to an animal in need
Let us show you how easy it is to create your legacy.
