The key is discovering what’s best for you
Whether supported through an outright gift or planned gift, all Humane Society of Broward County programs are made possible through the generosity and commitment of people like you. But we also want to make sure you benefit from making a gift to us.
How does this happen?
Of course, you have the satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve made a difference. But, in fact, the best gift plans may also improve the donor’s financial and tax situations, often right away.
All individuals who arrange a planned gift(s) to the Humane Society of Broward County are recognized as a member of our Legacy Club. Each year, Legacy Club members are honored with a special luncheon. Furthermore, donor names are included in a special presentation at the HSBC.
There are many ways that your philanthropic gifts can blend with your own financial needs and tax planning, so explore the possibilities and opportunities for creative gift planning. Planned gifts include bequests through your will, life income gifts, gifts of life insurance, charitable lead trusts and gifts of retirement plans. They are arranged by you legally during your lifetime. The principal benefits accrue to the Humane Society of Broward County at a later time, after your death or the death of your last named beneficiary.
Planned gifts take many forms, providing additional income for you and/or your heirs, reducing income and estate taxes, relieving you and your heirs of complicated financial management responsibilities and helping to fulfill your personal, humanitarian and charitable objectives. Planned gifts can be made in cash, real estate, stocks, bonds, personal property or life insurance.
