Thank you for your interest in learning about creative ways to support VIEW. Planned gifts are a great way to leave assets to VIEW that provide current and future benefits for both VIEW and you. Below are some options to leave a planned gift in our Legacy Program:
You can support VIEW's conservation mission far into the future by adding a bequest to your will or living trust. This type of gift will not alter your current lifestyle and is fully deductible for estate tax purposes.
Following is an example of language you can use:
“To Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife, a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization incorporated in the state of Montana in 2012, having as its principal address 1627 W. Main St #445 Bozeman, MT 59715, and tax identification number EIN: 46-1233603, I, [name], of [city, state ZIP] hereby give and bequeath the sum of $______ or _____percent of my estate to be used as determined by VIEW for the general purposes of VIEW.”
Did you know you can name VIEW as a beneficiary of your retirement funds and the entire designated amount passes to VIEW tax-free? And that your gift is fully deductible for estate tax purposes? Alternatively, retirement accounts like IRAs, Keoghs, and 401(k) plans are taxed as income to your heirs, and may be subject to estate tax. You may designate:
Your entire retirement account;
A set dollar amount;
A percentage of your total retirement funds;
An amount contingent on other conditions being met, such as having a loved one predecease you.
Consult your financial advisor or your employer’s human resource department to get the simple form to designate VIEW (tax identification number EIN: 46-1233603) as a beneficiary of your retirement account.
Other Types of Planned Giving
There are a variety of other types of planned gifts that are of great help to VIEW that can also help you create wealth and leave a lasting charitable legacy. These include Charitable Gift Annuities, Deferred Payment Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, IRA Rollover Gifts and others. Please contact us or your financial planner to see if these types of gifts are right for you. In the right situation, planned gifts can help you save on your taxes, avoid capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated assets, and plan and save for the future.
LET US KNOW YOUR PLANS
If you have included VIEW in your estate plans, please let us know by calling or emailing us. Thank you for your generous commitment to VIEW.
If you’re 70½ or older and have an IRA, you likely know that you are required to transfer a percentage of your IRA each year (the “Required Minimum Distribution” or RMD). Did you know that you can turn your RMD into a charitable gift by transferring it directly to Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife? That way, it will not be taxed and will qualify toward your required minimum distribution. This is a win for you as well as for the wildlife we help to protect. Simply contact your IRA administrator to request that a charitable distribution be transferred to Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife. [WD4C’s tax ID is 20-2708654, and our mailing address is WD4C, Box 280 Bozeman, MT, 59715]
Avoid federal and, in many cases, state income taxes.
Satisfy your required minimum distribution.
Provide critical support to Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife.
Designate your gift to support the program or department that is most meaningful to you.
Guidelines for charitable IRA rollover gifts

Transfers from traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs are eligible.
Transfers must be made directly by the IRA administrator to Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife.
A maximum of $100,000 per taxpayer, per year qualifies for the tax-free status.
IRA rollover gifts can be used to pay a pledge.

Steps to make a Charitable IRA Rollover gift to VIEW
