Gift or estate planning: frequently asked questions
Why do I need an estate plan?

Everyone, regardless of age or net worth, needs an estate plan.  An estate plan may simply consist of a will or may contain additional documents, like a trust. An estate plan ensures your assets (including money from bank accounts, stock, life insurance policies, property and real estate) are distributed according to your wishes. If you do not have an estate plan, you risk state law determining who will receive your assets.

What types of planned gifts can RedRover accept?
  • Wills/trusts/bequests
  • Life insurance policy
  • Retirement disbursement
I am not quite sure where to begin when it comes to creating my estate plan. How can I help both RedRover and my heirs through my estate?

Please contact us at 800.440.3277 or info@redrover.org. We can help get you started.

Do I need to retain legal counsel to establish a planned gift?

It is not necessary, but we encourage you to consult your tax or legal advisor when considering any planned gift or to help you set up a complete estate plan.

What is your tax ID number?

United Animal Nations, d.b.a. RedRover's tax ID number is 68-0124097.

I have already included RedRover in my will or estate plan. Do I need to do anything else?
