Planned Giving is a general term that includes several options to donors to make gifts through estate or other deferred means. There are many benefits, including tax benefits, maintaining control of your finances, and, in some cases, even increasing your income. Click on a link below for specific planned giving information.
Please note: Our legal name is Maryland SPCA, Inc. For more information on planned giving, please contact Emily Finton, Development Services Coordinator, at email@example.com or 410-235-8826 x135.
To honor donors who make a planned gift, the Maryland SPCA created Friends Forever. Donors who include the Maryland SPCA in their estate, either through a bequest, life insurance policy or other means, are recognized as members of Friends Forever.
Planned gifts are important to the care we provide the animals. Bequests have enabled the Maryland SPCA to establish an endowment, which now provides a substantial part of the revenue needed to operate the adoption center. Friends Forever provides a way to recognize and thank donors during their lifetimes for their generosity and foresight.
To become a member of Friends Forever, the only requirement is a written statement from you or your attorney, indicating your intention to leave a gift to the Maryland SPCA. You need not reveal the amount of the gift, and you can choose to remain anonymous. Members of Friends Forever will be recognized once a year in the Maryland SPCA's annual report.
