YYYInclude Animals In Your Will

Making a gift to 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You through your will or revocable living trust is a simple and flexible way to save the lives of pets for years to come.

You Can Make A Gift Through Your Will/Trust In Several Ways:

Specific Gift

You describe exactly what kind of gift you want to leave to a specific individual or organization and the designated source. If you want to leave a specific dollar amount from a specific source or a particular item (such as a piece of property or a collector’s item), this is the type of bequest you would use.

Example — Jeanne states in her will: “I leave my stamp collection to my grandson, Gregory. I leave my beach house to my daughter, Maria. I leave my securities to 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You.”

 

Residuary Gift

This type of bequest is honored after all other bequests have been made, and all debts, expenses and taxes have been paid.

Example — Elizabeth states in her will: “I give all the rest, residue and remainder of my real and personal estate to 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You.”

 

Contingent Gift

This type of bequest is fulfilled if certain conditions are met. For instance, if your primary beneficiary does not survive you, you can indicate your next choice through a contingent bequest.

Example — Robert states in his will: “I give all the rest, residue and remainder of my real and personal estate to my wife, Susan, if she survives me; if not, then 50 percent in equal shares to my children who survive me and 50 percent to 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You.”

XXXDonate Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a planned gift to YYYYYY. If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Why not allocate the remainder to philanthropic giving, and help us Save Them All?

Typically, Retirement Plan Balances Are Subject To Both Income And Estate Taxes. Because YYYYYY Is A Nonprofit Organization, We Won’t Pay Income Tax On The Distribution Nor Will The Gift Be Subject To Estate Tax.

Your retirement assets may be transferred to YYYYYY by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate YYYYYY as a beneficiary, the animals will benefit from the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate can also benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.

 

Example — Robert states in his will: “I give all the rest, residue and remainder of my real and personal estate to my wife, Susan, if she survives me; if not, then 50 percent in equal shares to my children who survive me and 50 percent to 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You.”
