Donations Through Planned Giving
Veterinarians and their clients are encouraged to leave a legacy through planned giving. Planned giving is a form of charitable giving in which one’s assets are given through wills and estate plans in order to enhance a non-profit organization’s work. Most planned gifts are by a simple bequest in a will. Planned giving is a way for individuals to add satisfaction and meaning to their lives by assisting organizations close to their hearts.
Some donors work with their attorney, accountant or financial adviser to provide for future gifts while reserving an income interest using a charitable remainder trust, charitable gift annuities or pooled income funds. Assets used to fund planned gifts include life insurance, IRA beneficiary designations and appreciated assets, such as securities and real estate.
