Insurance Policies

Insurance policies can be an easy way to make an important gift whether it is an old policy that has outlived its original purpose (such as for a spouse who no longer needs it, a child who is financially independent, or to protect a business that no longer exists) or a new policy purchased specifically to benefit The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Foundation (GWIZF), a gift of life insurance can allow you to leave a much larger gift to animals than may have been possible during your lifetime.

Living Trusts

Similar to a will, a living trust is revocable and contains instructions for who should handle your estate's final affairs and who should receive your assets. And a living trust can be used in conjunction with a will to help facilitate the management and distribution of your assets. However, unlike a will, a living trust does not go through the probate process. Therefore, a living trust can provide a greater degree of privacy than a will, which once in probate becomes a public document. Also, unlike a will, a living trust goes into effect immediately, not after you pass away, and can thereby help you control your assets if you should become incapacitated.

POD and TOD Accounts

Meaning that you, as the owner of the account, name The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Foundation (GWIZF) to receive the funds upon your passing. This type of arrangement is also sometimes referred to as a "Totten Trust" or a "Savings Account Trust." Additionally, most states allow stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities to be designated as "payable on death" (POD) and "transfer on death" (TOD).
