Leave a legacy and remember the SPCA of NENC as part of your estate plan.
Our shelter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends heavily on donations to provide high quality care and compassion to the homeless and needy animals in our community. You may make donations as part of your estate plan, and thus avoid diminishing the assets available to you during your lifetime.
A Gift As Part of Your Will or Living Trust
A simple way to help ensure we can continue helping homeless animals is by leaving the SPCA of NENC a gift, or charitable bequest, through a will or living trust. If you already have a will, you may add the SPCA of NENC as a beneficiary through a simple amendment called a "codicil." Any such gift could provide your estate with possible tax savings, if you have a taxable estate.
Another way to help ensure we can continue our important work for animals is by leaving the SPCA of NENC a legacy through a beneficiary designation. Just name the SPCA of NENC as a beneficiary to receive assets from one or more of your accounts after you are gone. This can be done with accounts such as bank accounts, retirement plans, brokerage accounts, and life insurance policies. This can usually be done by simply filling out a form with the entity (i.e., the bank, insurance company, etc.) where the account is held.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
If you have a sizable estate, you could leave assets to the SPCA of NENC through the use of a charitable remainder trust. A charitable remainder trust provides you and/or other named beneficiaries with income for life or for a specified period of time (up to a maximum of 20 years at the time this was prepared). After this period, the remaining assets pass to the SPCA of NENC. An immediate charitable tax deduction should be available upon creation of the trust.
