Donate for Stray Animal Care

Ramona Humane Society is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with no public or private government funding. We are supported solely by contributions from generous people. Any donation made to us goes to the care of more than 8,000 animals brought to RHS every year! You may donate in various ways such as your time, items, and/or monetary gifts.

Gifts and Donations

Apart from will or trust, one can offer any of the following as gifts.

Any and Every Donation is welcomed!

Anyone can donate some specific sum to us.

We are blessed to receive support from some of the kindest animal lovers in the world. With your consistent support and donations, we can continue to help pets in the community of San Jacinto Valley and Hemet. 


Estate Percentage

You can instruct to leave a certain proportion of your land for us. However, when planning an estate, one can consider additional options for a charitable donation.


You may opt to donate stocks, notes, and bonds to us through your will or trust when we receive your donation. Our Board of Directors sells the shares or may maintain the stock to sell when the price rises.

Interest in Real Estate

Real estate can be a planned Giving. A person can leave their real estate for us. We encourage you to communicate your desire to get the feasibility of such a donation.

Personal Property

You can bequest any works of art, antiques, stamp and coin collections, jewelry, or any items that could benefit animal welfare.


  • You may also designate us as an alternative beneficiary in the event your primary beneficiary predeceases you.
  • A charitable bequest or will is deductible for federal estate tax purposes. There is no limited deduction your estate can claim.
  • Your assets remain in your control.
  • You get the freedom to alter your plan.
  • You may choose to donate to the ramona humane society directly, or you may opt, after a particular distribution to your heirs and other loved ones, to leave the remaining residue of your assets for us.

Future Gift

You can make a potential contribution to us through a provision in a will or a revocable trust. A revocable trust holds assets during your lifetime. Later on, it transfers ownership of them or benefits from them upon your death. Unlike a will, a trust must take ownership of assets before it can pass them to your beneficiaries.

The major difference between a will and a trust is in the delivery process, which is always smoother for trust. However, building trust can be a little tougher. A lawyer or financial advisor will help you pick the format that is right for you.

How Gift Benefits Animals

All the gifts received will be used for the welfare of animals or developing our shelter to help more animals. Please reach us if you have a vision or purpose for including us in your estate planning.

How to Proceed

Please include our full name for legal purposes in your will. You can also share your vision with us for any special request for your estate. We will maintain the utmost confidentially of all information.

If you have an existing will or trust, you can include us without any need to rewrite the entire document. You can prepare a codicil that adds a new bequest to us while reaffirming the other terms of your will. Similarly, one can create an amendment to their revocable trust to add us as a beneficiary.
