A Gift In Your Will
The simplest way to leave a planned gift is to make a bequest that names Spay-Neuter Services as the recipient of a charitable gift in your will or living trust. You may contribute a specific dollar amount, or a percentage of the rest, residue and remainder of your estate.
Here is sample Bequest Language:
“I do hereby give and bequeath the sum of $_______ . ____ OR written ________ percent (___%) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to Spay-Neuter Services, Inc., an Indiana Inc not-for-profit corporation and internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c)(3) public charity.” Optional: Gift restrictions or purpose.
A Gift of Retirement Funds
Another easy way to leave a bequest is to name Spay-Neuter Services, as the full or partial beneficiary of retirement funds held in your IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) to add to or establish a charitable fund. This is a simple and effective way – and maybe the most tax advantageous – to create your legacy since it will not be subject to either estate or income taxes, as it would be if left to anyone other than a spouse.
A Gift of Life Insurance
Like your retirement accounts, a separate beneficiary designation form determines who will receive money from your life insurance policies. Policies that you own enable you to name a charitable beneficiary. A simple way to make a legacy gift is to designate Spay-Neuter Services as the full or partial beneficiary on the required beneficiary form. Contact your plan administrator to obtain the change of beneficiary form. This is one of many ways to donate life insurance.
