Planned gifts, also called legacy or estate gifts, are a crucial source of future funding that enables PETA to plan and carry out the best possible programs to save animals. And you do not need a great deal of wealth to make a difference—every dollar means an extra chance for an animal in need! Remembering animals in such an enduring way is quite possibly the most powerful gift that a person can make to stop animal suffering.

If you are remembering PETA in your will, trust, life insurance policy, and/or other planned gift, thank you! Please let us know―we would be honored to welcome you into our Augustus Club, which is dedicated to those of our members who have remembered animals and PETA in their estate plans. We will work hard to carry forward your legacy of compassion for animals.

Your estate plan represents your beliefs, your compassion, and your legacy―our philanthropic specialists can assist you in designing a long-term gift to fit your desires and help give animals a future.

We strongly suggest that you consult with your attorney or other independent professional advisor to ensure that your plans are in compliance with all applicable laws.
