Planned and Legacy Giving

We are grateful for animal lovers who care deeply for the homeless pets served by Franklin County Humane Society and choose to leave a legacy through their charitable estate plans.  FCHS has had many donors throughout our history that have made legacy gifts.  Their actions have impacted thousands of dogs and cats.

We honor these very special donors through our Legacy of Hope Society.  We encourage donors to let us know of their future estate gifts so we can ensure that their future gift will be utilized in a way that truly honors their intent.
