Planned Giving

The Jessica Legacy Society


In memory of Jessica Franklin, Hand in Paw's first therapy dog, HIP offers you the chance to leave a legacy of love.

In the spirit of the small dog with such a big mission, society members have included Hand in Paw in their wills.


Leave a Legacy of Love


Hand in Paw can be a beneficiary in your will in the following ways:


  • Specific Bequest: An outright gift either as a designated dollar amount or percentage of your estate could be specified.
  • Residual Bequest: Hand in Paw can be named to receive funds only after specific sums have been provided for your other beneficiaries.
  • Contingent Bequest: Takes effect in the event of death of your other primary beneficiaries.
