Let us thank you and fulfill your gift intentions

Dear Faithful Friend,

Here at UPAWS, we do understand that many people prefer to keep their estate and/or financial plans private. However, in letting UPAWS know of your plans, it allows us to thank you for your generosity during your life, and just as importantly be sure we are able to fulfill your stated intentions. Furthermore, it allows us to plan for the future of the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter and the animals in our care.

Informing us of your gift allows us to include you, if you wish, in special activities for our Faithful Friends, inform you of exclusive information on UPAWS future plans and at your discretion, include you in our Faithful Friend spotlight, highlighting our planned giving members. We hope it may further help others consider UPAWS in their estate planning.

Thank you for planning a gift to the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter animals and our mission. Together, we can ensure a future for Marquette County’s homeless pets.
