PUT ME ON YOUR CAR

By purchasing a Florida Animal Friend License plate, you help fund free and low-cost spay and neuter programs across the state. Your individual annual donation adds up to dozens of large grants which are professionally implemented and evaluated. If you already have a Florida Animal Friend plate and want to switch to the new one, you will need to order a new plate or wait until your ten-year renewal time.

Bequests, Wills, & Securities

Making a legacy gift to support the animals through your will or living trust gives you the immediate satisfaction of creating a lasting and personal legacy that ensures a future for Halifax Humane Society!  A selfless contribution that costs nothing now - yet worth so much.

Leaving a gift to Halifax Humane Society in your will or trust, by beneficiary designation, or another form of planned gift can make a lasting difference to our work. Many gifts cost you nothing now, there is no minimum contribution, and you are not locked into a decision you make today.


Wills


A will to the Halifax Humane Society is a wonderful way to express your love for animals as part of your legacy.

How It Works

  • Include a will to Halifax Humane Society in your will or trust.
  • Make your will unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose within the Halifax Humane Society.
  • Indicate a specific amount, or a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate or trust.

Sample Language:

 “I will _________(dollar amount or % of state) to be used for its general purposes (or you may restrict the gift to a specific program) to the Halifax Humane Society Inc., or its successors and/or assigns by merger or purchase, federal tax identification number 59-0530990, whose present address is 2364 LPGA Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32124.”

Benefits

  • Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
  • You can modify your will to address changing circumstances.
  • You can direct your will to a particular purpose (be sure to check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).
  • Under current tax law there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable wills.

Life Insurance

Halifax Humane Society accepts gifts of life insurance either as the beneficiary of a policy or as the sole owner and sole beneficiary. This can be an existing or employer provided policy or a paid up policy.

You can name Halifax Humane Society as a primary life insurance beneficiary or as a contingent beneficiary should your other beneficiaries not survive you. After your lifetime, the benefits from your policy pass to Halifax Humane Society, free of federal estate tax.

Existing or Employer Provided

How It Works

  • Contact your life insurance carrier and request a beneficiary form.
  • Designate Halifax Humane Society as a primary or contingent beneficiary

Benefits

  • Simple to give: Involves little effort or paperwork
  • Financial advantage: Continued ownership of your policy
  • Flexibility: You can change your mind and your beneficiaries at any time
  • Future tax savings: Removes the asset from your potential gross taxable estate

Paid up Policy

How it Works

  • You transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to Halifax Humane Society
  • Halifax Humane Society cashes in the policy now or maintains it and receives the death benefit later.

Benefits

  • Income tax savings: You’re entitled to a current income tax deduction
  • Future tax savings: Removes the asset from your potential gross taxable estate

Retirement Plan

Retirement assets include tax-deferred retirement saving accounts, like Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA), 401(k), 403(b), annuities, Keogh, and pension plans.  Gifts from these accounts while you are still living may have withdrawal penalties and may have income tax consequences.   However, naming the Halifax Humane Society as the beneficiary of your retirement assets at your death avoids both income tax and estate tax obligations.

If the largest asset in your estate is your retirement plan, such as a 401(k), IRA, or Keogh, you may be surprised to learn that the IRS will impose income tax on the remaining balance in the account if you designate it to a beneficiary other than your spouse.

The income from the after-death distribution of a tax-deferred retirement plan to an heir is taxable as income and is in addition to the estate tax that may be imposed on the account. For estates fully subject to the estate tax, the result can be that up to 75 percent of the value of your retirement plan will be consumed in taxes before your child, relative or friend receives it.

How It Works

  • Name the Halifax Humane Society as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other qualified plan.
  • Designate Halifax Humane Society to receive all or a portion of the balance of your plan through your plan administrator.
  • The balance in your plan reverts to Halifax Humane Society after your lifetime.
  • Your gift to Halifax Humane Society is not taxed for income nor for the estate because Halifax Humane Society is a tax-exempt organization.

Benefits

  • Avoid the double taxation your retirement savings would incur if you designated your heir(s) as beneficiary(ies).
  • Continue to take regular lifetime withdrawals.
  • You can remove as a beneficiary if your family’s needs change.

Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are the most common types of securities in a person’s portfolio.  By making a gift of securities to the Halifax Humane Society, you can claim the full appreciated value of the Securities as a charitable contribution deduction and avoid the capital gains tax.
