Establishing a legacy gift to the Friends of SFACC will help us continue to rescue and protect homeless, unwanted, and abused animals long into the future. All legacies left to Friends of SFACC, no matter what the size, provide a much needed resource and are tax deductible. We’ve partnered with FreeWill: a free online resource that will guide you through the process of making a legally valid will and include a legacy gift to Friends of SFACC in 20 minutes.

A legacy can be cash, real estate, or securities. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to Friends of SFACC.

Many savings accounts, checking accounts, mutual funds, annuities, life insurance policies, and retirement plans allow you to make a charitable gift using beneficiary designations. With this secure online tool, you can designate Friends of SFACC as a beneficiary of your non-probate assets such as an IRA, 401(k), or life insurance policy. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value. Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and real property also qualify for a charitable income tax deduction, and help you avoid capital gains taxes and reduce potential estate taxes. Estate gifts should be directed to the “Friends of San Francisco Animal Care & Control, Federal Tax ID #94-3371620.”
