We welcomed a large transfer of puppies last night, and in order to accomodate all of the residents we will be closing the shelter at 3:00 PM on Friday, April 20th. We may be opening late tomorrow so check back in the morning for updates on our hours of operation.
One of the nicest things you can do for the community's homeless animals is to help assure that they will be taken care of in the future. Below you will find the basics of some of the most common types of planned gifts. There are a variety of options on each gift type, and one is likely to provide you with the flexibility you desire and the confidence that you have provided welcome support to the Virginia Beach SPCA.
Whether you want to eliminate taxes to benefit from an increased income stream, there is a gift to fit every objective. Through philanthropic bequests and gifts that provide a personal income, such as gift annuities or charitable trusts, you may be able to make a larger gift than you thought possible. Leave your legacy by making a planned gift to the Virginia Beach SPCA. To learn more about how you may “remember” the VBSPCA within your estate plans, please contact our Development Office at (757) 427-0070 ext. 144.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of assets, rather than cash, can often be made to the Virginia Beach SPCA and prove tax-wise to you. Giving appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds can provide tax advantages, including avoidance of capital gains taxes and, in most instances, a charitable deduction for the full fair market value. Find our more about the benefits of making gifts of securities to the VBSPCA by contacting our Development Office at (757) 427-0070 ext. 144.
