Additional Ways to Give to the Rescue

  • Sponsor an Animal:  The Sponsorship Program was developed for the lover of horses/ ponies or any other designated and available animal at the farm. This program helps support the feeding, housing and care of unwanted, abused and neglected animals.  Click Sponsorship Program for more information.

  • Calendar Partnership/Advertising:  Buy ad space in our yearly calendar and support the animals at Carolina Boarders while also getting your business out there!  OR, partner with us for your next fundraiser and have our calendars available for sale.  Click here for more information on our Calendar Partnership Program.

  • Honor/Memory:  Make a donation to Carolina Boarders in honor or memory of a person or pet. You have the option for us to mail an acknowledgment card to the person of your choice, notifying them of your gift. For acknowledgment cards, a minimum donation of $25 is suggested. Whether it is for a milestone birthday, personal achievement, professional honor or some other momentous occasion, a donation to Carolina Boarders is a special way to recognize your friends, family and pets while making a contribution to the future of our rescue.  To make a contribution, click here.  We will send notification that a gift has been made so make sure you let us know where to send it!

  • Bequest in Wills:  You can give an outright gift of cash, securities, real estate or personal property and designate it for transfer to Carolina Boarders. You can make a gift of described property, a percentage of your estate, the residual of your estate or a specific dollar amount. Your retirement account can be allocated to Carolina Boarders where the total unused portion would be passed onto Carolina Boarders. Because Carolina Boarders is a nonprofit, charitable foundation, 100% of this money would pass to the Farm. If it was left to a person, than passed to the farm, it would be taxed.

  • Living Trusts:  In most states, a will must go through a probate process that can often be expensive and time consuming. By creating a revocable living trust you can avoid probate while naming Carolina Boarders. a beneficiary of the trust, much as you would by making a bequest in a will.

  • Life Insurance Policies:  Insurance can often be a fairly inexpensive way for you to leave a sizable gift for the animals. If your existing policy is no longer needed for its initial purpose (such as your children’s education), you can make a gift of it to Carolina Boarders, with tax deductions equal to its cash/replacement value. If you are younger, this is a way to “create” a larger gift than you might have thought possible in the future. You can also designate Carolina Boarders as the future care giver of your animals that may need placement or permanent retirement and the policy will pay for their care.

  • Retirement Accounts: Donate your 401k or retirement account to Carolina Boarders. Other than your living spouse or a nonprofit 501c-3, whoever you leave your excess 401k or retirement account funds to will be taxed up to 55%. Leave your 401-k or retirement account to Carolina Boarders and the animals will benefit 100% tax free on the rest of your hard earned retirement. Nothing to loose because you use it until you pass, then the rest is given to help benefit the animals of Carolina Boarders.

  • Charitable Life Estate:  Give your home, a farm, or even a vacation cabin to Carolina Boarders. now while continuing to enjoy your life, or the lives of you and your spouse.
    Carolina Boarders does not receive the property until the last tenant died. This is like leaving the property to us in your will except, by doing so now,  you will receive a substantial tax deduction.

  • The "Totten" Trust:  The simplest of all trusts: this is accomplished by simply signing a card at your bank that leaves an account “in trust for” Carolina Boarders. This action is revocable and the assets of the account are yours for the rest of your life, passing to Carolina Boarders. free of probate time and costs, after your death.

  • Stocks and Bonds:  Donate stocks directly to Carolina Boarders stock account and while helping the animals you also will get a great tax benefit. Stocks would be donated at the full face value in which you can write off, no matter how much their gains were since you purchased them.
