Do you want your love of Mylestone's horses to continue helping them in the future? If so, please consider a bequest to Mylestone. Including us in your will gives the gift of life to the abused, starved and abandoned horses that we rescue and bring to Mylestone.
However, planned giving means more than just including us in your will. There are options that can help Mylestone as well as your own financial circumstances right now. Some of these can provide you with tax benefits at the present time.
Through a planned gift, you may be able to increase your current income or provide additional retirement income, while reducing income tax and estate taxes. Some types of gifts virtually eliminate estate taxes, while others greatly reduce the amount of tax you are responsible for during your lifetime. In order that both you and the horses receive the full benefit of any gift you may consider, it is important to explore your options.
We suggest you speak with your attorney and/or financial planner in looking into some of the following options to benefit Mylestone as well as yourself:
- Bequests through your will
- Retirement Plans - consider donating the interest from your IRA, investments or other qualified savings plan to Mylestone
- Life Insurance Gifts - you can elect to make Mylestone the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy
- Charitable Gift Annuities - these provide numerous tax benefits to you, and you are guaranteed income for the rest of your life
