Naming the OHS in Your Will

Naming the OHS in Your Will

Leave a lasting gift for the future of Ottawa’s animals and the future of our community

It’s up to you to decide how your bequest will be used, however a general gift allows the OHS to direct the monies received to the areas of greatest need.

Clause for your will

To set up a legacy gift, which will benefit the animals, simply ask your lawyer to add the following statement to your will:

I give to the Ottawa Humane Society, 245 West Hunt Club Road, Ottawa Ontario, K2E 1A6 the sum of $_______________, or ______________% of the residue of my estate or my property at __________ in the City of ______________________. The disposition of my bequest is to be used by the Ottawa Humane Society at its discretion.”

Note: You can also download this clause in PDF format, or email a link this page to your lawyer.
