Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Anyone, regardless of age or income, can gain from financial and estate planning.  Planned giving can enable charitable donations at a level that you might not have thought possible, while maximizing the tax benefits for you and your family.   Please note that planned gifts should be carefully considered in relation to your comprehensive financial and estate plans.  It is strongly recommended that you consult your financial adviser and an attorney in the preparation of your Will or another type of planned gift and supervise its execution so as to comply with your state requirements.

Haywood Spay/Neuter provides several planned giving options:


One of the easiest and most common ways to make a gift to Haywood Spay/Neuter is through a bequest in your Last Will and Testament.  Bequests work particularly well for those who are unable to make an outright gift, but would like to aid Haywood Spay/Neuter in the future.

A bequest can be simply stated as follows:

    "I bequeath to Haywood Spay/Neuter located, 182 Richland Street in the town of

    Waynesville NC (federal taxpayer identification number: 56-1574745, the sum

    of $____________ or __________% of my residuary estate (or an accurate description of

    securities, real estate or other property given) as an unrestricted bequest to be used

    for the organization's stated mission of providing spay and neuter and wellness services

    to the community members in Haywood County who otherwise could not afford them."


Gifts of Insurance

For insurance to qualify as a gift, the ownership of whole life, endowment or certain universal life insurance policies must be transferred to Haywood Spay/Neuter with Haywood Spay/Neuter also named as the irrevocable beneficiary of the policy.

Retirement Assets

Some assets are not transferred through a will.  These include assets in a qualified retirement plan (qualified plans include an IRA, Keogh, 401(K), 403(B), or defined benefit plan) that remain after your lifetime.  Often, a retirement plan is a pre-tax asset and, when transferred to a beneficiary, is subject to estate tax as well as income tax.  Naming Haywood Spay/Neuter as the beneficiary of your qualified retirement plan may be advantageous and financially judicious .  Most often, all that is required is to name Haywood Spay/Neuter on the beneficiary line when you sign up for your retirement plan, or to modify your current election by notifying your plan administrator.  


We hope you will tell us when you made a planned gift to Haywood Spay/Neuter.  We would very much like the opportunity to thank you for your generosity.  If you would prefer to remain anonymous, your gift will be kept confidential.  Whichever the case, we will honor your wishes.

For additional information or to discuss planned gifts to Haywood Spay/Neuter, please contact our office at 828-452-1329 or a member of the Board of Directors.

Commemorative Giving

Gifts can be made at any time for those you wish to honor or memorialize.  Your gift, no matter what size, will be deeply appreciated and will serve to advance the mission of Haywood Spay/Neuter.  It will translate into hope and awareness for those in need of spay and neuter services.

In Memoriam


A memorial gift is a wonderful way of commemorating the life of a loved one who has passed away or a beloved pet that has crossed over the rainbow bridge.  To facilitate gifts, memorials may be established in the name of the deceased.   If you provide the name of the memorialized loved one or beloved pet along with an address , a letter will be sent to the family to inform them of your donation.  The amount will not be listed. Make a memorial gift online.  

In Honor

An honor gift is an opportunity to acknowledge a special occasion for a friend, family member, or colleague.  We will mark the occasion by sending a letter (if you provide a name and address in the NOTE section in PayPal) to the person you designate announcing the gift, not the amount.  Make an honor gift online.
