Hospets - Donate

Hospets is an all-volunteer, private, non-profit organization. Most of our operating budget comes from people like you. Your donation can help us be sure senior- owned pets are receiving the care they need so that the pets can keep providing the physical and emotional benefits to their families.

All donations to Hospets are tax deductible!

Corporate Matching Gifts

A matching Corporate gift can often double or triple your donation, and all matching support is credited to you. Contact your company’s personnel or human resources office to find out if your employer, or your spouse’s employer, has a matching gift program. Then simply complete the relevant section of the matching gift form and enclose it with your gift.

Personal Property

Hospets welcomes gifts of tangible personal property that can be used to further the organization’s mission. By donating items like equipment, automobiles, artwork, or rare books, donors not only reduce their taxable estate; they also reduce taxable income in the year of the gift. Donors and their tax advisors assign a fair market value to the gift for tax purposes.

Life Insurance

Naming Hospets as the owner or beneficiary of a life insurance policy is a good way to make a large donation to the rescue at nominal cost to you. Premiums paid for policies are tax-free.

Bequests and Planned Gifts

Planned Giving is a gift vehicle that allows you to donate via a trust, an annuity, or, most commonly, a bequest. Including Hospets in your will can establish a permanent family legacy and provide tax benefits, a life income benefit, or other favorable estate arrangements. Your own tax advisor, attorney, or estate planning professional can help you determine the best way for you to make a gift to Hospets.

Lastly, outright gifts of cash, checks, securities, stocks, and tangible assets transfer immediately to Hospets, to support the needs of the organization. Bequests and planned gifts can operate over the long term, allowing you the power to plan far into the future.

We thank all those donors and strive to make giving options both flexible and convenient. We simply cannot do this important lifesaving work with out you. Each and every dollar donated goes to assist senior citizens and the pets they love. Earmark your donation for a specific use or project and we will make sure you get a full report of how your dollars were used.
