The Nonhuman Rights Project works through litigation, public policy advocacy, and education to secure rights for nonhuman animals. Your gift will help make nonhuman rights a legal reality and ensure that nonhuman animals’ fundamental interests are recognized and protected. We are a tax-exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code. Below are ways to give to the NhRP!
- Gifts of Cash are the most common form of giving to the NhRP and fully support our mission. You can donate online or send a check to: The Nonhuman Rights Project, Inc., 5195 NW 112th Terrace, Coral Springs, FL 33076.
- Gifts of Stock held for more than one year can benefit you with an income tax deduction equal to the current fair market value of the assets. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for stock transfer information.
- Monthly Giving is an easy, efficient way to make a tax-deductible gift that will help the NhRP continue to fight for nonhuman rights for animals all year long! Donations can be set up online via our FastAction website form or PayPal.
- Leadership gifts are generous supporters who make an annual gift of $500 or more. Benefits include invitations to exclusive events, quarterly reports from NhRP President Steven M. Wise, a personal contact at NhRP who can answer any questions you may have about your gift or the issues we are working on, and the satisfaction of knowing that you play a key role in our work to secure rights for nonhuman animals.
- Honor/Memorial Gifts: Honor a birthday, anniversary, mentor, or law school graduate with a gift to the NhRP! A letter will be sent to your recipient notifying them of your generosity.
- Your Will: Leaving a gift to the NhRP through your will is a simple, yet significant contribution to a future where we recognize nonhuman animals’ fundamental rights and protect their fundamental interests.
- The NhRP as a beneficiary: You can designate the NhRP as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, of your residual estate (the remainder after payment of other bequests), or of specific assets.
- Charitable Gift Annuities are first, and foremost, a gift to the NhRP. However, a charitable gift annuity also provides you with fixed income for the rest of your life. It can offer you significant tax benefits, such as an immediate federal income tax deduction and, if you donate appreciated securities, savings on capital gains taxes. A charitable gift annuity is a simple agreement between you and the NhRP. In exchange for a donation of $20,000 or more, the NhRP will pay you and/or another recipient fixed payments each year for life. These payments, a portion of which may be tax-free, are based on the age of the payment recipients at the time of the gift and are backed by a gift annuity reserve fund as well as our financial assets. The older the donor, the higher the annuity payments. If you are between the ages of 50 and 60, you can defer the annual payments for a period of years and receive a higher annuity rate and larger tax deduction, while establishing a reliable source of retirement income.
- Financial Accounts, such as checking, savings, and certificates of deposit, can be designated as “payable on death” (POD) to the NhRP, whereby the NhRP is named to receive the funds upon your passing. Additionally, most states allow stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities to be designated as “transfer on death” (TOD).
- Life Insurance Policy and Retirement Plan: You can make the NhRP the beneficiary of all or a portion of the proceeds from your life insurance policy or individual retirement account (IRA), 401k, or other qualified pension plan. Leaving retirement assets to the NhRP can maximize their value by avoiding possible income and estate taxes.
- To make the NhRP a beneficiary, simply provide your financial institution with the NhRP’s full legal name (The Nonhuman Rights Project, Inc.), the NhRP’s mailing address (5195 NW 112th Terrace, Coral Springs, FL 33076), and the NhRP’s federal tax ID number (043289466).
Thank you for your support! If you have any donation-related questions, please email email@example.com.
