Types of planned gifts

The MD SPCA can accept many types of planned gifts. Common options include:

  • Bequest.
  • Life insurance policy.
  • Charitable trust or gift annuity.
  • Retirement plan.
  • Other (Savings bonds, CDs, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, & donor-advised fund residuals).

Completing our Deferred Gift Information Form will ensure that your gift supports the programs you care about.

Legacy of Care

Who will care for your pet if you can’t? If you don’t have a family member or friend who can take custody, you might consider enrolling your pet in Legacy of Care (LOC).

The MD SPCA provides shelter and care for LOC pets while finding them a new home. To begin the enrollment process:

  • Please complete the pet data sheet for each pet you wish to enroll.
  • Return your form(s) to the MD SPCA . We’ll confirm receipt and be in touch with any questions.
  • Once your pet is qualified for LOC, the MD SPCA asks that you include us in your charitable gift planning. Your planned gift will help to care for your pet as well as many others.

Stocks and securities

Gifts of stock and securities don’t impact your income, and you can still take a tax deduction for the full, fair market value.

  1. Notify your broker or financial institution that you’d like to make a gift of stock or securities to the MD SPCA.
  2. Share our full legal name (Maryland SPCA, Inc.), address (3300 Falls Road, Baltimore, MD, 21211), tax id or EIN (52-6001558), and brokerage account number (76698099).
  3. Let the MD SPCA know your gift is coming. Without identifying information—for example, the type of stock and number shares–we won’t be able to credit and acknowledge you. Financial institutions won’t divulge donor information.

IRA rollovers

If you’re age 70.5 or older and receive a required minimum distribution (RMD), you may be eligible to avoid paying taxes by rolling over those dollars to the MD SPCA.

  1. Consult with your financial or tax advisor to make sure you’re eligible.
  2. Contact your IRA vendor directly about rolling all or part of RMD over as a qualified charitable distribution.
  3. Most IRAs have clear processes in place for distributing a rollover directly to charities like the MD SPCA.

I’m so inspired by the MD SPCA staff. They are hard-working, dedicated, focused people who care immensely about animal welfare. It’s important that we support the MD SPCA so they may continue their mission of helping animals in need.
