Transfer on Death Account

You can support the Animal League by naming the Animal League the beneficiary of a "transfer on death" bank or stock account.

  • In almost all states it is possible to own a bank or brokerage account in your name with the provision that on your death it will be transferred to North Shore Animal League America. These are often called “transfer on death” or “pay on death” accounts or Totten trusts.
  • If you choose to make the Animal League the beneficiary of a TOD account, you have complete control over the accounts during your lifetime.

Here is the information you will need to establish a transfer on death account with your bank or broker:

North Shore Animal League America
16 Lewyt Street
Port Washington, NY 11050
Tax ID # 11-1666852
