What is a planned gift?

A planned gift is a donation that is arranged in the present but made at a future time. Planned giving is a way to leave a legacy and support the important causes that matter most to you for years to come.

There are several ways to approach making a planned gift to Safe Hands:

  • Leave a bequest in your will or trust by designating Safe Hands Animal Rescue as the beneficiary of your assets via your will or trust.
  • Designate Safe Hands as beneficiary of your retirement account, life insurance policy, or other non-cash asset to support our work.
  • Make an IRA rollover directly from your Individual Retirement Account to Safe Hands, helping you satisfy your minimum distribution while maxing a tax-free gift to our rescue work.

If you are considering a planned gift to Safe Hands, or simply want more information, contact Development Manager Maggiy Emery at maggiy@safehandsrescue.org to find out how your gift can lay the groundwork for lifesaving rescue work for years to come.
