FREE TOOL FOR PLANNING THE FUTURE

A little planning can provide a lot of peace of mind – ensuring the future care of your family, pets, and the causes important to you. Creating a living trust, will, or other legal document outlining your wishes is critical for a smooth process and to ensure your needs are met.

Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter’s partner, FreeWill, provides a fast and free online tool to help you plan your estate. Once your free will is complete, you may bring your results to an attorney to help you with the details and implementation.

Should you name Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter as a beneficiary in your will or trust, we would welcome a copy of the legal document or section of the document that accompanies your gift. This can make estate administration easier when your gift is received.

WAYS TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION

IRA TAX-FREE BENEFIT

If you are age 70½ or over, you may transfer up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to an eligible charity tax-free. Instead of being taxed as income to you, the animals benefit from 100% of the distribution when donated directly to us. Contact your financial advisor today to facilitate your tax-free IRA gift to Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter.

DONATE APPRECIATED STOCKS, BONDS, OR MUTUAL FUNDS

The same is true of appreciated stock. You can avoid capital gains by donating stock directly to us. No age requirement for that.

RECOMMEND A GIFT THROUGH YOUR DONOR-ADVISED FUND

If you have a donor-advised fund, consider recommending a grant to the Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. Ask your financial advisor to designate a gift to the Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter and, please let us know when you do, so we can say thank-you.

Through your kindness, homeless animals will be given the necessary care they deserve today, tomorrow and always.
