The Many Ways of Giving
by: Eileen Dallaire
You can ensure the primates receive quality lifetime care and that we can continue saving lives for decades to come. Whether you direct your gift from a donor-advised fund or select the Primate Rescue Center to benefit from required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRA that may benefit your tax planning, it all makes a meaningful difference to the primates and can be accepted by our organization. You can also include language in your will or living trust to leave a portion of your estate to the sanctuary, or designate the PRC as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. You may also consider assessing your financial portfolio of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other securities, as we also are able to accept these types of donations. Even during down markets, there may be benefits to making theses types of charitable gifts to ensure you are not hit with unexpected tax liabilities (i.e., wash-sale rule). We are now also able to accept cryptocurrency donations through our partnership with The Giving Block. With so many ways to give, we hope there is a way that fits your goals as you discuss these options with your family or financial planning advisors. You can find more information on our website when you click the Donate button, or give us a call at 859-858-4866! It all adds up to the gift of sanctuary and helps us keep our promise of lifetime care to the incredible primates in our care.
