LEGACY GIVING

Friends who include the Richmond SPCA in their long-term charitable planning are recognized as members of the Legacy Society. These thoughtful supporters have decided to establish a legacy of support at the Richmond SPCA. A simple way to become a member of the Legacy Society is to remember the Richmond SPCA in your will or estate plans. Your generosity will help guarantee life to homeless animals for many years to come.

Many other options, which may provide you with numerous tax benefits, exist for legacy giving. Through a legacy gift, you may be able to increase your current income or provide additional retirement income, while reducing or avoiding income, estate and capital gains taxes. It is important to explore options with your financial planner and attorney so that both you and the orphaned pets at the Richmond SPCA receive the full benefit of a legacy gift. Our representatives and partners will be happy to provide you with additional details at your convenience. All inquiries are confidential and without obligation.

In addition, the Richmond SPCA offers a special program for loving pet owners who want to ensure that their pets will be cared for after they are gone. For more information about Beauregard’s Program please click here.

If you are ready to notify the Richmond SPCA of your planned gift intentions, please click here to download a non-binding Statement of Bequest Intention Form. If you are considering a planned gift or would like more information, please call Lisa Rivadeneira at 804-521-1321 or email lrivadeneira@richmondspca.org. Thank you! 

Ways to Create a Legacy at the Richmond SPCA:

  • Support the Richmond SPCA with a Bequest Gift by leaving all or a portion of your estate to help our homeless animals in need. A bequest is a simple and flexible way to leave a legacy of support at the Richmond SPCA. It costs you nothing during your lifetime, but will help ensure the future of our organization for years to come. Read more about Vernon Jackson and his special bequest to the Richmond SPCA >>  You may leave a bequest to the Richmond SPCA through one of these options:

    Include the Richmond SPCA in your will, or include it in an amendment or codicil to your existing will.

    Sample language:
    I give, devise, and bequeath to the Richmond SPCA, located at 2519 Hermitage Road, Richmond VA 23220 the sum of $__________.

    or

    I give, devise, and bequeath to the Richmond SPCA, located at 2519 Hermitage Road, Richmond VA 23220 ____% (percentage) of my estate.

    and/or

    I give, devise, and bequeath to the Richmond SPCA, located at 2519 Hermitage Road, Richmond VA 23220 (a description of the property).

    or

    I give, devise, and bequeath to the Richmond SPCA, located at 2519 Hermitage Road, Richmond VA 23220 all the residue of my estate, including real estate and personal property.

    Name the Richmond SPCA as the beneficiary of your IRA or make a distribution from your IRA (learn more).

    Name the Richmond SPCA as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
     
    Create a Life Estate Gift, by giving the Richmond SPCA your home while retaining the right to live there for the remainder of your life.

  • Establish a Charitable Remainder Trust. Similar to a Charitable Gift Annuity, a Charitable Remainder Trust also provides you with income for life, but this income has the potential to increase as the trust grows over time. This legacy gift also provides flexibility in the number of beneficiaries and other many other options. 

  • Establish a Charitable Lead Trust, which works in the reverse manner of a Charitable Remainder Trust. The donor establishes a trust, receiving a tax-deduction at that time, and designates a charity to benefit from payments for a fixed number of years. At the end of that time, the trust is left to your designated heir.
