Planned Giving

Our future begins with you. By making a charitable gift through your Will, Trust, or other planned giving options, you help ensure the future of homeless Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes for years to come.

There are several ways to make a planned gift to AGK:

Bequest in Your Will of Trust

A bequest in your Will or Trust is a simple way to support our future. Your gift will ensure a Golden life for every dog that comes to us and can reduce your estate’s taxes.

Beneficiary of Your Retirement Plan

Supporting us through your IRA or other retirement plan via a beneficiary designation form is easy to do and a smart way to donate.  Retirement plans that are passed on to your heirs are subject to income taxes, but because AGK is tax-exempt, we are eligible to receive the full amount of your gift.  Simply request a beneficiary form from your retirement plan administrator to add AGK as a beneficiary.

Life Insurance Policy

If you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need, consider changing your policy’s beneficiary to support our work.  Simply request a beneficiary form from your insurance company to add AGK as a recipient.

Important to know:

If you name AGK in your plans, please use our legal name, address, and federal tax ID number to be sure we are correctly identified, and please contact us to let us know:
