From planned giving to selecting LifeLine as your charity on AmazonSmile, there are many ways to show your support for the animals who need it most.
Designating LifeLine Animal Project as a beneficiary of your will, in our view, is the ultimate show of a donor’s belief in the organization’s work, now and in the future. If you have any questions about including LifeLine in your estate planning, please reach out to Chief Development Officer, Jennifer Eddy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A donation of stock is a powerful and easy way to support LifeLine’s work and receive a significant tax break from the IRS. You will not pay capital gains tax on the securities you donate, and you will receive an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value on the date of transfer. As always, we recommend that you consult your tax professional or financial advisor for guidance before making charitable donations.
