Other Ways to Give
GIFTS OF PROPERTY
Gifts of property help to support Last Chance for Animals and our investigations, campaigns, and programs that put an end to animal abuse and cruelty. Your contributions do make a difference for the animals.
LCA accepts donations of artwork, antiques, jewelry, vehicles, or coins. You are entitled to an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifts which varies depending on IRS limitations.
GIFTS OF STOCK & REAL ESTATE
It is often more tax-wise to contribute an asset – such as stocks or real estate – that has appreciated considerably (increased in value) than to make a cash donation.
When donating stock, you benefit in two ways: you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock, and you receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Stock donations are fully deductible up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income.
A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage or vacant lot can provide tax benefits when contributed to LCA. You can avoid a sizeable capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property. In addition, it is possible to make a gift of your home, farm, or vacation home, while retaining the right to use it for the rest of your life – and receive a tax deduction at the time of donation.
ROYALTIES & INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
These unique assets can make a meaningful gift in support of our life-saving programs. You can donate royalty payments and intellectual property rights in movies, television show, images, and books.
To ensure you receive the maximum income tax deduction for your planned gift, please consult with your own professional tax advisor.
Workplace giving programs allow individuals to direct a percentage of their paychecks or a fixed dollar amount to LCA. Support LCA at your workplace by giving through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), United Way, your employers own workplace giving campaign or by participating in your employer’s matching gift program.
--Combined Federal Campaign (CFC #11657)
Military and federal employees can support DOGS LAST CHANCE (dba of Last Chance for Animals) through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) by selecting LCA’s code: 11657.

--Employee Giving Programs
Many companies offer their employees an opportunity to make a charitable donation through payroll deductions. Ask your human resources department for information.
--Employer Matching Gifts
Many companies have a matching gift program; you make a donation and they will match a percentage of your donation, all you have to do is ask. Check if your company matches gifts and if not, ask them to participate.
