Gifts of Cash
A donation of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make an impactful gift. Gifts can be designated for endowment or annual operating expenses, and naming recognitions are given to all donors who fund program endowments with the Lexington Humane Society. Many donors enjoy the benefits of giving now and creating a planned gift to support a specific program in perpetuity. This type of blended gift is meaningful to our donors and fast-forwards our mission.
