Planned Giving and Charitable Bequests

Planned giving is one of the easiest ways to make a lasting legacy to support equine-assisted services to people with disabilities and hardship at Southern Reins. Your charitable bequest can be made through a will or living trust, donation of stocks and bonds, gifts of real estate, retirement asset donations, and life insurance designations. Including Southern Reins in your estate planning also has benefits that could include estate tax charitable deductions and reduced tax liability for your family.
