All of the basic information you will need to make North Shore Animal League America the beneficiary of a Legacy Gift can be found here...
Legacy Estate Gifts:
Legacy gifts (often called “planned gifts”) are a powerful way to help Animal League America continue our mission to rescue, nurture, adopt and educate long into the future.
Legacy gifts can take many forms, but all share the unique characteristic that they allow you to ultimately donate more to help save the lives of animals than you may have ever thought possible while retaining the flexibility to donate conservatively during the course of your lifetime.
A Legacy gift can be:
- A gift or “bequest” from your Will or Trust
- Naming Animal League America a beneficiary of your Retirement Plan (IRA)
- Naming Animal League America a beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy
- Naming Animal League America a beneficiary of a savings, checking, brokerage or other transfer on death account (TOD)
- A gift to fund a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) which guarantees you lifetime payments. To learn more please click here
Each of these gifts will allow you to enjoy specific tax advantages as well, so we always recommend that you discuss your personal financial plan with a professional.
