A tribute gift is a great way to honor someone special while furthering the mission of Soaring Wings Ranch. We will send an acknowledgement card informing the person or family members of your thoughtful gift.
All honorarium and memorial gifts will go toward the general operation of the Ranch. You may use the Donate button above and e-mail it with the tribute information so that we can send an acknowledgment card on your behalf.
If you prefer to mail in your gift, you may download the Honorarium/Memorial Gift Form here.
Gifts of cash are the easiest and most direct way to contribute to Soaring Wings Ranch. Outright gifts of cash are immediately deductible for individuals who itemize on their federal income tax return.
These opportunities of giving can, likewise, be very appealing because of the available double tax benefit. The donor receives an immediate federal income tax charitable deduction and avoids the capital gains tax that would have resulted in the selling of the property.
These are assets that are frequently overlooked as an ideal way of giving a charitable gift. Friends of Soaring Wings Ranch can contribute paid-up policies that were originally purchased to meet needs, such as mortgages or college educations, that are now achieved. Gifts such as these are deductible for income tax purposes and will be used towards our endowment fund or pay for a campaign-related priority.
A Charitable Remainder Trust is an option for achieving a charitable deduction without surrendering the income you need from your investments. The trust, with your local bank or other entity serving as your trustee, will pay a life-time annuity equal to or greater than the income you had been receiving. The trust can also provide life income for a spouse, relative, etc. When the trust ends, the assets become the sole property of Soaring Wings Ranch. In addition, you gain a charitable deduction to reduce your income and estate taxes; however, the simple joy of creating the trust will result in the perpetuation of the Ranch. Our Executive Director and Matt Jones with Legacy Capital Group can work with your financial and legal advisors in establishing any number of planned giving arrangements with Soaring Wings Ranch, in addition to the Charitable Remainder Trust illustrated above.
