Have you already included a gift in your will or trust? Please fill out this form to let us know! We would love to thank you for your generosity.

Leave a legacy of love for pets in need with these tax-smart giving tools. 

Begin Your Legacy with Us

To help you get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating your will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online, and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own, or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.

Non Probate Assets

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.

Other Tax-Smart Options

Rather than donating cash, many of our donors are opting for smarter giving, non-cash options that not only support our mission but may also offer a variety of tax benefits. Read below to learn more about giving stocks, cryptocurrency, gifts from your IRA, and making a grant from a donor-advised fund. 

Other Ways to Give

Stocks and Bonds

Donating stocks allows you to avoid capital gains tax and often take a charitable deduction for the full value of the asset. Use this tool to donate stock so we can track your gift, send you the correct receipt, and you can get the tax savings you deserve. 

QCD (IRA Giving)

If you are 70.5 or older, giving from your IRA can help reduce your taxable income — and for those over 73 who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it!

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations today. It’s a great way to ensure consistent financial support while saving cash for immediate needs.

Cryptocurrency

We now accept donations of Ethereum, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies! This gives us one more way to fund our work and can provide you with extra tax benefits.
