Bequests

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways you can leave a lasting impact on the horses at DEFHR. A bequest may be made by including language in your will or trust directing that a gift be donated to DEFHR. You can donate retirement plans (401K, IRA) and life insurance/annuities as well by naming DEFHR as the beneficiary.

If you are considering a bequest, you will need to provide your attorney with the following important information:
