PAWS’ Federal Tax ID is: 26-3862631.
Ways to give include:
- Specific Bequest: Name PAWS the beneficiary of a 401(k), IRA, marketable securities, or cash.
- Residuary Bequest: Designate PAWS to receive all or a portion of the remainder of your estate once all specific bequests (to family and friends) have been satisfied.
- Contingent Bequest: You may choose to designate PAWS to receive assets in case your primary beneficiaries (family and friends) predecease you.
Donations to PAWS, a 501(c)3 organization, are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your attorney, estate planner, or tax professional can advise you on the tax benefits and savings associated with making a bequest to PAWS.
