Giving through charitable gift annuities

If you’d like to support WildCare while providing a steady income for you or another beneficiary for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

When you irrevocably donate $10,000 or more in cash, securities or other property to WildCare, you or a beneficiary will receive fixed annual payments for life at a rate based on your age or the age of the beneficiary. Payments begin when you or the beneficiary are 50 or older, with a year deferment option available.  The principal then passes to WildCare after the lifetime of the income beneficiaries.

We recommend contacting a financial advisor for annuity rates and details on income tax benefits.

Giving through a charitable remainder trust

This option is another way to generate income for today while securing a legacy for tomorrow. With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to WildCare, sustaining our mission. Contact your financial advisor for more information.

Once you’ve made changes to include WildCare as a beneficiary, please notify us. We will be sure to carry out your requests, and include you in WildCare Tomorrow Fund acknowledgments and special events.
