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 (AZ), 975 East Riggs Road, #12-152, Chandler, AZ 85249, 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.
