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.
Designating the VBSPCA as your retirement plan beneficiary will ensure that neither estate nor income tax will ever be owed on the assets and that 100% of the value of your designation will benefit the animals at the Virginia Beach SPCA. You will maximize the impact of each dollar in your plan and your impact on the animals. Simply request a beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator and designate the Virginia Beach SPCA as your beneficiary.
One may designate the VBSPCA as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy and potentially enjoy estate tax savings because of this gift. Additionally, if you have a fully-paid or partially-paid policy you no longer need, you can donate the policy to the Virginia Beach SPCA and be eligible for a current income tax deduction.
A variety of trusts, including charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts, enable you to make a generous gift to the VBSPCA while meeting your family's financial needs. Many trusts offer significant tax benefits and a reliable payment stream for you and your family during your lifetime, and a generous legacy for the Virginia Beach SPCA.
With a bequest - through your will or living trust - you can leave all or part of your estate to the VBSPCA. Bequests can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. General unrestricted bequests support our operations and endowment to ensure the Virginia Beach SPCA's future.
