Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving with Parker's Animal Rescue

Understanding Legacy Gifts

Legacy gifts, or planned gifts, are contributions that are arranged now to be allocated at a later date, typically after the donor has passed. These gifts can take various forms, such as bequests, gifts of retirement assets, and beneficiary designations.

For Parker's Animal Rescue, legacy gifts provide lasting support, ensuring we can continue our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome animals in need. Your thoughtful planning today secures a brighter future for countless pets.

Take the Next Step

No matter the size or form, your Legacy Gift will make a significant difference in our community and help Southwest Colorado become a better place for all.

We are eager to collaborate with you and your advisors to ensure your gift becomes a lasting legacy.

Be a Catalyst for Change

Many of us feel a profound urge to leave a positive mark on the world. At Parker's Animal Rescue, we aim to nurture the spirit of philanthropy and expand the culture of giving to meet the needs of our community's animals. Your Legacy Gift can help us achieve this vision.

There are numerous simple ways to make a meaningful contribution that not only benefits our community but also provides financial advantages for you and your heirs.

Retirement Assets as Gifts
Leaving a bequest is one of the simplest and most versatile ways to support Parker's Animal Rescue. By naming us in your will or living trust, you can specify a particular amount, asset, or a percentage of your estate. This approach allows you to retain control over your assets during your lifetime and can offer significant tax benefits.

Designating a Beneficiary
You can easily designate Parker's Animal Rescue as a beneficiary of your financial assets, such as IRAs, 401(k) plans, bank accounts, annuities, and life insurance policies. This can be done by updating your beneficiary form to include us as a primary, secondary, or partial beneficiary, helping your estate avoid probate and potentially reducing taxes.

How to Contribute

Legacy Gifts can be funded with various assets, including cash, stocks, real estate, retirement funds, and life insurance. We are here to help you and your advisors create a Legacy Gift plan that meets your financial goals and benefits our community of pets.
