With your future support, you can continue to help our animals in care by providing funds for shelter operations, medical supplies, and vital programs and services. Did you know this final gift can also be a practical addition to a financial or estate tax plan? There are a number of types of bequests that we accept. Please speak to your financial advisor about the options that will work best for you.

A gift of trust is made when you decide to make a charitable organization of your choice the secondary beneficiary to an irrevocable trust. The primary beneficiary (or income beneficiary) includes you and, if applicable, your spouse. Throughout your lifetime, or for a stated period of time, the primary beneficiary will receive a predetermined amount of the trust; upon death the charitable organization of your choice will receive the remainder of the trust.
You can reduce tax implications by donating securities directly to registered charities because publicly listed securities are exempt from capital gains tax on gains triggered by the gift.
CA Humane is able to accept annual donations and legacy gifts of stocks and bonds. If you or a loved one would like to donate via stock or bond transfer to help our animals in care, you can work with your broker to designate transfers.
CA Humane Security Donation Options
Security Donation Form:
Gifts of retirement plans are made when you name a charitable organization of your choice as the beneficiary. This means that upon your passing, the organization would receive the proceeds and your estate will receive a charitable receipt for that amount. This receipt will counterbalance your final income tax return, transforming any final tax liabilities you have when you die into a charitable gift.
A gift of life insurance is made when you name a charitable organization of your choice as the beneficiary. This means that you control the policy, and the organization would receive the insurance proceeds upon death.
A gift of real estate is made when you leave property, buildings, land, or a place of residence that you own to a charitable organization of your choice. This type of gift can be given immediately or specified in your will. You will receive a charitable tax receipt to be used in your final income tax return.
Central Alberta Humane Society recognizes and appreciates the generosity of individuals, businesses and organizations that invest in our facilities, programs, and operational funding. We believe donor recognition is to sincerely show gratitude toward donors who support the organization and are based on donor needs and wishes, as well as the availability of recognition pieces within the facility. We wish to respect the individuality of the donor, the donation, and the facility as a whole. Learn more here.
