Legacy/Planned Giving

You can create a lasting legacy and make an impact for decades to come with planned gifts that support Saving Grace in its mission to rescue and find loving homes for animals in need.  Planned gift options typically involve donations of cash, property or life insurance benefits. They can be structured in a will or estate plan, or through a trust agreement that also may provide you with tax advantages.

  • Bequests name Saving Grace in your will with specific information on what you want to give.
  • Life Insurance policies can allow you to name Saving Grace as a beneficiary.  Whole life policies
    allow for donating the policy’s accumulated value.
  • Tax-qualified Retirement Plans enable you to name Saving Grace as a beneficiary or as a
    recipient of a percentage of the proceeds.
  • Qualified Charitable Distributions allow you to transfer funds directly from your IRA or qualified
    retirement account to Saving Grace. A transfer may count toward your required minimum
    distribution and direct charity transfers result in no taxable income to you.
  • Trusts (revocable or irrevocable) enable you to manage funds and distributions to your
    designated beneficiaries.
  • Transfer appreciated securities to Saving Grace and receive an income tax deduction for the fair
    market value of the donated securities while also avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciated

We recommend that you seek legal or financial planning advice and send the appropriate documentation and contact Saving Grace so we can work together to ensure your wishes are followed.
