A gift of appreciated stock or other securities offers an immediate income tax
charitable deduction for the full market value, and is exempt from capital gains tax.
The shelter’s policy is to liquidate securities upon receipt.
Life Insurance Policy Beneficiary Designation:
This is a gift in which all or a portion of your life insurance
policy transfers to the society at the end of your lifetime. The gift
is recognized as a donation once the shelter is named as a designated or
contingent beneficiary, the policy becomes irrevocable, and the shelter
receives evidence of the gift. Valuation of life insurance gifts may require
the advice of outside financial and/or legal advisors upon acceptance.
Retirement Plan Beneficiary Designation:
This is a gift in which all or a portion of your retirement account’s
unused balance transfers to the shelter at the end of your lifetime.
The gift is recorded as a donation at the time it transfers to the shelter
and it is not subject to income or estate taxes. Simply identify Lucky Paws
as a designated or contingent beneficiary on your plan’s beneficiary form.
Bequests through Wills or Trusts:
A bequest is a gift of personal property that transfers to the shelter at the end of
your lifetime through your will or trust. A charitable bequest is a special bequest
with a charitable purpose that also reduces the estate taxes owed after your lifetime.
A bequest is recognized as a donation at the time it becomes irrevocable. Here is sample
language for your will or trust to share with your attorney: I hereby give to
Lucky Paws Shelter (AZ), 6423 East Thomas Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85251,
Federal Tax ID #45-2527080 all (the sum of $____) (____% of my residuary estate),
to be used for its charitable purposes.
Transfer on Death (TOD) Accounts:
A TOD (also called Payable on Death, POD) account allows you to maintain complete
control of your bank or brokerage accounts during your lifetime, and then immediately
transfer the remaining balance of your accounts to Lucky Paws at the end of your lifetime.
Contact your financial institution to request a TOD (or POD) account and identify Lucky Paws as the recipient.
Charitable Trusts & Annuities:
Gifts may also be given to the shelter in the form of charitable lead trusts,
charitable remainder trusts, and charitable gift annuities. Please contact your financial advisor or attorney for information or

Below list of items that Lucky Paws Shelter needs. This list is continually updated with our latest needs.
As one could imagine, the number of animals we rescue and care for means that many of these items fall
into the category of “we couldn’t get enough!” because we have a continuous need for them.
Cleaning products fall under this category, we sure love our animals but as you know, they know how to make a mess!
If you would like to donate an item from our wishlist,
or have an item not on this list, but you think it would be useful to our organization,
please contact us for more information. All contributions are very much appreciated!!
- Thank you
