Help the horses in many different ways:
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.

being should be allowed happiness.
