Wills and Bequests
It can be difficult to think about what will happen to us when we pass away. Many of us might avoid the topic altogether, just because it can be uncomfortable. But it’s important to consider estate planning to make sure your final wishes are respected. Without a will or bequest in place, the decisions regarding distribution of your property might end up in the hands of the state, instead of the people and charities you love. Designating your assets towards a nonprofit’s use may also help offset some of the high estate taxes you might encounter.
When you support Beaumont Pets Alive through your will (bequest) or with another kind of planned gift, you reinforce your commitment to our community’s most vulnerable animals. Supporting Beaumont Pets in this way will help save animals’ lives in Beaumont, Texas. Selecting Beaumont Pets Alive as a beneficiary in wills and bequests allows Beaumont Pets Alive to continue critical services that make our community a better place, securing your legacy of lifesaving for years to come. When remembering Beaumont Pets Alive in your will, you can choose among several options according to your wishes. You can designate a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a portion of the residual of your estate, whichever is best for your circumstances. To leave Beaumont Pets Alive in your will, we recommend that you contact an attorney to create and implement a document tailored to your needs.
If you wish, you can direct your attorney to use this language: “I give and bequeath the sum of $ __ (or, ___ percentage of my estate) to Beaumont Pets Alive, a Texas nonprofit corporation (Federal ID # 82-4798808).”
Annuities & Trusts
You can help our community’s animals and at the same time receive income for life and the life of your beneficiary. Charitable gift annuities are a method of giving that are used by organizations to benefit their programs.
Charitable gift annuities are popular because they provide a fixed income to you for life regardless of the market conditions.
If you would like help creating a charitable annuity but need assistance, you will need to visit your financial professiona or an attorney.
In many cases, a person who donates an appreciated asset to a charity instead of selling it can take a charitable deduction for the full value of the property while also avoiding capital gains on the property.
If you have land, a second home or other real estate you wish to donate, they have similar benefits to appreciated securities. It is also possible to donate your home to the Beaumont Pets Alive and retain lifetime use of the property. A trust may be created based upon the value of the home at the time of the donation.

Life Insurance and Retirement Plans

Both life insurance and retirement accounts can be used to make a charitable gift to Beaumont Pets Alive. By using either of these methods, you can make a larger gift than an outright cash gift. Most often, you can make the gift with no or little loss of income and also receive a substantial tax deduction.
