Charitable Trusts

Charitable trusts help ensure the future of the animals in Home for Life's care. Receive income for life or transfer property to your children or grandchildren in a tax-advantaged manner.

There are several different types of trusts, each with specific benefits to the donor, to someone the donor designates, or to the charity. At the end of the trust, the remaining assets either go to the charity or revert to the donor's family. The amount of the income stream is either a set amount per year or a percentage of the value of the assets.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Balance your individual/retirement needs with your philanthropic interests. The Home for Life chartiable gift annuity can help you strengthen our sanctuary while providing a lifetime income stream for you, you and your spouse jointly, or someone else whom you designate.

There are several "real" benefits you will receive.

Life Insurance Policies

Using a life insurance policy to support home for life can be very cost-effective, especially for younger donors. Donors may apply for a new policy or make a gift of an existing policy that has a cash value.

A new life insurance policy can enable someone with many current family obligations to turn a relatively small contribution into a dramatically larger gift. For older donors, a paid-up life insurance policy that is no longer needed also makes an excellent gift.
