We believe that all living animals possess an intrinsic value and that humans must become responsible stewards of their care. Nevada SPCA has been serving pets in need for over 38 years. A planned gift will help to ensure that Nevada SPCA is able to be there for the animals into the future. By recognizing the Nevada SPCA in your will, trust, or insurance policy, or by setting up an annuity, you can be certain that Nevada SPCA will be here, assisting animals in need, for years and years to come. In addition to being an extraordinarily meaningful gift toward a cause that is important to you, a planned gift can also be a tax deduction.To assist you with this important process, we recommend that you contact your attorney. Additional information can be found below or can be obtained by reaching out to Nevada SPCA’s Executive Director. Here are some ways to leave a legacy of love. Also, after you have made a planned gift in our name, please notify us!
1. Will or Trust Gifts
When you make a bequest to Nevada SPCA, you will ensure that assets given will be used for programs and services that help animals. There are several types of bequests:
- Specific Bequest – a specified amount, or specific asset, designated in your will or trust as a gift to Nevada SPCA
- Residuary Bequest – designates that a specific percentage of your estate, or all, will be paid to Nevada SPCA after payment of all other distributions, including debts, taxes, expenses, and other bequests, have been made.
- Contingent Bequest – specifies that your estate, or a portion of it, will go to Nevada SPCA if your other named beneficiary(ies) predeceases you.
Sample Bequest Language: To make certain that your charitable intentions are carried out, all wills, living trusts and their codicils or amendments should be prepared by or with the advice of your attorney. You can share with your attorney the following language that can be included in your will or living trust and tailored to address your specific wishes:
I give to Nevada SPCA (Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), Federal I.D. No. 88-0187383, located in Las Vegas, Nevada (the sum of $______) (all or __% of the residue of my estate), to be used for its general purposes.
2. Retirement Gifts
A gift to the Nevada SPCA through a retirement plan (IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Keogh, or other qualified retirement plan) is one of the easiest and most tax-effective ways to ensure a strong future for the lives we save. Such assets, if given to an individual, will be subject to various kinds of taxes, but if given to a charity, such as the Nevada SPCA, will not be taxed.
