A bequest to VIPP will ensure the gift of life for the homeless animals of Vashon Island. Please include the work of VIPP in your will.
There are many other options for planned giving. They can provide you with tax benefits while they help the animals. 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. It is important to explore your options so that both you and the animals receive the full benefit of any considered gift. A representative will be happy to discuss opportunities with you at your convenience but we also recommend you consult with an attorney or expert of your choice.
Some options include:
Bequests through your will
Charitable Gift Annuities: Provide numerous tax benefits to you, and you are guaranteed income for the rest of your life
Life Insurance Gifts: Make Vashon Island Pet Protectors the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy
Retirement Plans: Donate your interest in an IRA or other qualified savings plan
If you are considering a gift and would like more information, please submit your request via e-mail at DONATE@VIPP.ORG. To contact us by phone, please call (206) 389-1085 and press "7".
