One of the kindest things you can do for the homeless animals of our community is to help assure that they will be taken care of in the future. Below you will find 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 along with confidence in knowing that you have provided critical support to the Virginia Beach SPCA.
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. 142.
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. 142.
