OUR LEGACY SOCIETY - The Easiest Way to Make an Impact

Planned giving makes every dollar go farther.  Interested in helping Rescue Ranch continue its mission for years to come? To maximize your charitable giving, as well as fulfill your own financial needs, you can fund the future of the Rescue Ranch through your estate planning.  Making a gift through your estate is one of the most effective ways to ensure that we can carry on our mission far into the future.  We invite you to join other supporters who have already taken the steps necessary to ensure the future of our organization. We look forward to working with you to design a gift that meets your charitable and financial goals.

Three easy giving options include bequests, retirement plan assets and life insurance policies. Naming Rescue Ranch as a beneficiary to your retirement plan assets or a life insurance policy is easy. Have your plan administrator or insurance professional list Rescue Ranch as the beneficiary in your paperwork as follows:

Our Legal name and mailing address is:

Rescue Ranch, Inc.
P.O. Box 5998, Statesville, NC 28687

Let us know that you have made this provision so we can add you to our Legacy Society and keep you up to date with the Ranch.

Another simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

By including a bequest to Rescue Ranch in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue to celebrate animals, educate children, conserve the environment and confront cruelty for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.

You can use the following assets to fund a bequest:

  • Cash
  • Appreciated Securities
  • Real Estate
  • Tangible Personal Property
  • Closely Held Stock
