What is Charitable Planned Giving?

Charitable planned giving refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to one or more nonprofit organizations, a gift that requires consideration and planning in light of the donor's overall estate plan. The most effective way of making a charitable gift is to plan the gift so that it achieves as many personal objectives as possible.

Planned Giving

Benefits to the Donor:

  • Makes possible a more significant gift than would otherwise be possible.

  • Shelter current income through substantial tax deductions.

  • Opportunity to establish a living memorial for yourself or someone special to you.

  • May provide retirement income.

  • Can be an effective tax reduction strategy, possibly reducing federal estate taxes and probate expenses.

  • The satisfaction of leaving a legacy of saving lives

Benefits to the Humane Society of Kodiak:

  • Result in larger gifts to support our vision of reducing unwanted and abandoned pets, cruelty to animals, and promotion of proper care of pets.

  • Help in planning realistically for the future.

  • Build endowment to fund growth and expansion.

  • Secure HSK’s continuing mission by stabilizing future budgets during lean years.

  • Assures that unwanted animals will continue to have an opportunity for a second chance at life in the years ahead.

  • Provide the satisfaction of having helped others to effectively plan their estates and care for the animals.
