Yorkie House of Hearts is a planned sanctuary for senior yorkies that have been left
in shelters. We will also provide a Lifetime Caregiving Pet Trust program for yorkie
owners who wish to leave their dogs to us in the event of their illness or passing.
Yorkie House of Hearts will provide lifetime care and companionship. These precious little dogs deserve to live their senior years with dignity and comfort. Yorkie House, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization (under the name of our parent company, Florida Yorkie Rescue, Inc.) funded by gifts from our generous donors who support our mission to rescue and provide compassionate care for abandoned or surrendered senior yorkies.
We welcome gifts of cash and of property, real or personal. There are many ways in which you can support Yorkie House of Hearts, including donations, grants, annuities and bequests or trust distributions.
Charitable Donations: A charitable donation is a gift made directly to a non-profit organization, charity or private foundation. Charitable donations are commonly in the form of cash but can also take the form of real estate, motor vehicles, appreciated securities and other assets and services. A charitable donation made by an individual will provide the donor with an income tax deduction.
Grant: A grant is a gift to a non-profit organization for a specific item or project.
Charitable Remainder Trust: A charitable remainder trust is a tax exempt irrevocable trust designed to reduce taxable income for the individual who established the trust by dispersing income to the trusts' beneficiaries for a specific period of time and then donation the remainder to the charity. A charitable reminder trust reduces tax liability by designing a charitable organization as the ultimate beneficiary.
Endowment: An endowment is established when a large financial asset is donated to a non-profit organization, usually in the form of investment funds or securities. The donation is tax-deductible for the donor. Most endowments are designed to keep the principal amount intact while using investment income from interest or dividends for charitable efforts. An endowment fund usually provides for regular withdrawals to be sued for ongoing operations of the non-profit organization or for specified purposes such as providing shelter for particular animals. Once an endowment fund is established, additional tax-deductible donations can be added to the account.
Charitable Gift Annuity: A charitable gift annuity may be established when an individual transfers assets to a charity in exchange for a tax benefit and a lifetime annuity. When the beneficiary dies, the annuity payments are stopped, and the charity retains the remaining funds. In a typical charitable gift annuity, the annuity payouts are not limited to the contributed assets. However actuarial calculations establishing payout amounts usually provide that a large residual amount should remain for the charity after the beneficiary’s death. A charitable gift annuity simultaneously provides a charitable donation, an income tax deduction, and a guaranteed lifetime income stream. The charitable donation tax deduction is limited to the amount contributed to the annuity in excess of present value.
Bequest, Devise or Final Trust Distribution: A bequest or devise is a gift made to a charitable organization in a Last Will and testament. A final distribution from a Living Trust may also be directed to a charitable organization upon the death or the settlor of the Trust. A bequest, devise or final trust distribution to a non-profit such as Yorkie House, Inc. may reduce or eliminate estate tax liability.
