Trusts & Giving Opportunities
A tribute donation is a meaningful way to recognize family, friends and loved ones, including pets. By making a gift in their honor or memory, you celebrate their lives while helping animals in need. A notification of your gift will be sent to the person or the loved one’s family. This is a great way to recognize birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or the passage of a person or pet.
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is like a chartable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations. When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, like a community foundation or at a financial institution, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.
Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds because it can have a large impact on our mission, while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains. If you would like to transfer your appreciated stocks online, you can use our secure online tool to walk you through the process in less than 5 minutes.
Supporters 70.5 or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to make a potential tax-free donation to Suncoast Humane Society from their IRAs. These gifts are tax-free, regardless of whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return. If you are 72 years old or older, these gifts can even count towards fulfilling your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the calendar year. You can use our online tool to make your tax-free donation online, print out the forms you need to complete the gift offline, or learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA.
