Make a Legacy Gift
Real change for animals doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years to pass a bill, move chimps to sanctuary, and see true changes in attitude towards animals in a community.
But if you know anything about us, you know we never give up. Animal Protection of New Mexico just celebrated its 40th anniversary. You can help ensure we continue to advocate for animals, tomorrow and always, with a legacy gift. Contact Isabel at 505-264-9643 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a free guide.
Ways to make a legacy gift:
- Name us in Your Will. Leaving a charitable bequest to APNM is a simple and painless way to make a substantial gift. While not required, APNM would appreciate receiving confirmation that the organization is named as a beneficiary of your estate and a copy of the portion of your will or trust that names APNM. Contact Isabel Slator for more information.
- Give Through Your IRA. If you’re over age 70½, you can donate up to 100% of your annual required minimum distribution, up to $100,000, to APNM—tax free to both. Simply have your IRA administrator transfer the funds directly to APNM by December 31st. Also, when you bequeath your IRA to charity, rather than to your family, you protect your heirs from inheriting a significant tax burden. While non-profit organizations, like APNM, can inherit IRAs tax free, individual heirs must pay tax on the asset upon inheritance and on subsequent annual distributions. To learn more, contact Isabel Slator.
- Donate Appreciated Stock. Gifts of appreciated stock benefit both you and APNM. Donated prior to December 31st, this type of contribution gives you a tax deduction for the full value of your gift and helps you avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated portion.
