HSN and FreeWill Widgets for Estate Planning

HSN Can Grant You Three Widgets!

These three widgets can help to make your wishes come true for humane treatment of dogs, cats and small mammals here in Collier County.

We have recently partnered with FreeWill, a public benefit corporation launched in 2017 that offers free, online software tools designed to broaden Americans’ access to estate planning tools, while helping them support the charitable causes they love.

With the widgets FreeWill has created for us, we can offer easy access to help you (a) design a will; (b) make a gift of appreciated stock; and (c) make a donation from you IRA. These links make the process of donating stock or IRA funds quite simple. And the will creation tool can help you create a simple will or at the very least provide you with a thorough draft to review with your estate advisors, saving you time and money at the front end.

Nearly 40% of HSN’s charitable support each year comes from estate gifts. Our savviest donors are also finding real benefits from contributing from appreciated stocks or IRA qualified charitable donations. We hope these links will be helpful to you.

Thank you for your commitment and compassion for the animals!
