San Francisco SPCA Legacy Society

The Legacy Society was created to honor its members for their commitment to saving and improving the lives of animals.

We are grateful to our generous donors who remember the SF SPCA with a legacy gift. Your support ensures our long-term financial strength and our capacity to continue our lifesaving work with homeless cats and dogs far into the future.

When you notify the SF SPCA about your legacy gift, we will enroll you in our Legacy Society. You will be invited to our annual Legacy Society Tea and other special activities. In addition you will receive a Legacy Society certificate and a specially designed Legacy Society lapel pin. We will recognize you in publications such as our magazine Our Animals. Your name will be honored on the Legacy Society Donor Wall in Maddie's Adoption Center. When you step forward, others are encouraged to do the same, although you may choose to remain anonymous.

Should you name the SF SPCA as a beneficiary in your will or trust, we would welcome a copy of the legal document or section of document that accompanies your gift. This can make estate administration easier when your gift is received.

Thank you for considering the SF SPCA through a legacy gift. Should you have any questions please contact Sandy Irber at (415) 554-3027 or
