Matching Gifts: Many companies have matching gift programs
that can double or triple your contribution. Ask your employer if they will
match your individual gift to
Honorary or Memorial Gifts:
Honor someone special to you with a memorial
gift to AFER. An animal or person for any occasion. Perhaps a
memorial donation in honor of a loved one who crossed the rainbow bridge.
Helping a horse in need is a great way to allow the memory of your loved one
We accept donations of cars, horse
trailers, farm equipment, office equipment that can be used or sold by AFER to
benefit the horses. Please see our
for items we need!
Naming AFER as the beneficiary of an old life insurance policy that is no longer
needed to protect your family is a simple way of making a large gift. You will
benefit from a potential income tax deduction (check with your tax attorney).
Gift of Stock:
Stocks and other gifts of investment assets such
as mutual funds provide an opportunity for a tax savings while supporting AFER.
Charitable Lead Trust - This
trust makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of
trust principal (unitrust), to charity during it's term. At the end of the trust
term, the principal can either go back to you (a grantor lead trust) or to heirs
named by you (a non-grantor lead trust). You may claim a charitable income tax
deduction for funding a grantor lead trust or a charitable gift tax deduction
for funding a non-grantor lead trust. Since lead trusts are typically used to
pass assets to heirs, non-grantor lead trusts are far more common than grantor
Bequest - When you decide to leave
assets to charity in your will, you are making a bequest. Your estate will
receive a charitable estate tax deduction at your death, when the gift is made
Retained Life Estate- You may make a
gift of your personal residence or FARM, to charity and retain the right to live
there for the remainder of your life. You receive an immediate income tax
deduction for the gift. At your death, the charity can use or sell the property.

Sanctuary Land for our Special Needs
Horses and Animals
A sanctuary was needed on the east end of Long Island where the efforts of
our horse rescue has
produced over 125 personally saved horses, ponies and mules. Over 90 have been permanently
fabulous new families, but many with special needs remain in sanctuary.
These are former school
horses, race horses, show horses, children's pets. All were saved from
slaughter. These and
more fantastic, hard working animals need a safe haven to relax and live
in peace. The goal, or wish of
40 acres will provide ample space for all. Can YOU help? We could become
quite self sustaining if we have land for grazing and for growing hay!!!
Animals that find themselves headed for slaughter are almost never sent
that route on purpose.
Many are products of a divorce, a financial setback, an injury requiring
time, a slow racehorse,
an unwilling jumper, an outgrown child's first pony. A mustang gathered,
but too young to ride
yet. Or a rooster, too old to fertilize the eggs now, chickens being torn
apart by a crazy rooster,
ducks in a hellish pen. Many animals need a place to live in peace. We wish
to teach children all
about animals, so the next generation to come will be better advised and
more compassionate toward them.
