Help Pets with Tax-Savvy Donations Before Dec. 31
Many of our pet-lovers have asked how they can help prevent animal cruelty and protect animals in need during these trying times. We need your help now more than ever before — here are two, tax-savvy ways to make an immediate impact with a gift from your IRA or stocks.
Why should you give from your IRA? If you’re 70 ½ or older, it’s an easy way to reduce your tax burden before filing time. That means that you can help us to care for and protect animals in need, while potentially staying in a lower tax bracket. These gifts are most powerful if made before the end of the year — so create your IRA gift before December 15 to maximize your impact, and your tax savings. Use this free tool to get started.
Do you own appreciated stocks? Many people like to donate stocks because it helps them to save on two types of taxes. It's an easy way to support every animal and the joy they bring, while saving on your finances. Use this free tool to donate stock.
Both of these gifts are immediate — which means the impact of your gift will be felt by the over 50,000 animals and humans we assist every year. Don’t wait! Make these strategic gifts now and support the Anti-Cruelty Society before 2020 comes to a close.
