Gifts of Stock

Donating stocks, bonds or mutual funds to Paws4ever is quick and easy. We work closely with Truist to receive and sell your transferred securities. The proceeds are put to work saving animals. Contact our Development team at support@paws4ever.org for more details.

Donor Advised Funds

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is like a charitable savings account that makes it easy and tax-efficient for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organizations. The donor makes a tax-deductible contribution to their Donor Advised Fund (through a public charity such as Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon) and receives their tax deduction immediately. The fund can grow tax-free over time, and the donor can direct grants from the fund to the charities of their choice at any time. Recommend a donation to Paws4ever from your Donor Advised Fund using our EIN: 23-7181780.

*When you make a gift to Paws4ever through a Donor Advised Fund, we do not automatically receive your name or contact information. To make sure we know the gift is from you, let us know! You can reach us at support@paws4ever.org or at (919) 241-8438 ext. 104

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct feature here:

IRA Distribution

When planning your IRA withdrawal strategy, consider making charitable donations through a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA, payable to a qualified charity. QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as certain rules are met. In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare. Also, QCDs don’t require that you itemize, which due to the recent tax law changes, means you may decide to take advantage of the higher standard deduction, but still use a QCD for charitable giving.

Contact your finance professional to see if you meet the requirements for making a qualified charitable distribution.
