How a Planned Gift Can Benefit You and Make a Lifetime Impact

Did you know one of the special ways you can donate to Dogs for Better Lives is through your estate? You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.

Planned gifts help generous individuals make larger gifts than they could make from their income. While some planned gifts provide a life-long income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and other heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.

Your Planned Gift can:

  • change several lives by turning Under Dogs into WONDER Dogs
  • earn you immediate tax benefits and income through your lifetime
  • achieve personal finance goals, while helping Dogs for Better Lives
  • reduce or eliminate taxes on capital gains and federal estate taxes
  • take care of your loved ones

Join Our Guardian Society

Planning your estate and legacy for future generations, including your charitable interests, takes careful evaluation. Consulting with the appropriate professionals can help. Discussing your charitable intentions with us can lead to a much better result than going it alone – and it will ensure that your gift is used just as you wish. We can give you valuable information about any of the creative giving techniques mentioned in our Planned Giving section.
