A monthly giving program has several advantages, both to the Niagara SPCA and to you. For the Niagara SPCA, a monthly gift helps provide a steady flow of support for our work to rehabilitate, foster and rehome animals in need and prevents their overpopulation through community outreach. For you, our cherished donor, a monthly giving program is an easy and affordable way to make your support go further and save even more lives.
By making a monthly gift, you join a special group of Niagara SPCA friends called Ambassadors and, if your monthly commitment is $25 or more, you get a valuable, one-of-a-kind T-shirt!
YOUR MONTHLY GIFT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
• $10 per month will provide a shelter animal with all required vaccines to maintain a healthy life.
• $25 per month will provide a shelter animal with food and treats
• $50 per month will provide a shelter animal with a socialization and behavior modification plan, including enrichment activities and toys, that will prepare them for their furever family.
• $75 per month will provide a sick or injured shelter animal the veterinary care they need to become well again.
• $100 per month will provide a shelter animal with a spay or neuter surgery that will help control overpopulation, thereby decreasing the number of animals entering animal shelters each year.
To make a monthly gift, mail a check to Niagara SPCA, 2100 Lockport Road, Niagara Falls, NY 14304. Please include a note letting us know you would like to participate in our Ambassador program.
We know there will always be homeless animals and animals in need of medical treatment and a second chance. In the face of economic hardships and the lack of spay or neuter clinics in our community, we know there will never be a day when we aren’t needed. We are committed to continuing a high level of care for the animals in our shelter and will continue to be guided by our no-kill mission well into the future.
It is because of this mission and the high cost of veterinary care that we must take steps to ensure that the needs of homeless animals are met in the future. When you make a planned, charitable gift to the Niagara SPCA, you have the satisfaction of knowing that your donation will help further the mission of the Niagara SPCA and ensure it is available for generations to come.
Our Shelter Angel Planned Giving Program encourages estate planning commitments for future gifts and provides special recognition to those generous benefactors who include the Niagara SPCA in their estate plans and for those who have made charitable bequests to the Niagara SPCA. Many friends of the Niagara SPCA, who were unable to make substantial gifts during their lifetime, have made major contributions by becoming a Shelter Angel with a thoughtful and well-planned will.
Leaving a bequest to the Niagara SPCA through your will and testament will ensure that your personal wishes will be carried out. Your will can be tailored to fit your personal goals and needs. The best part is that wills are relatively easy to execute and may reduce or eliminate gift and estate taxes. A simple clause can be added to most wills to achieve your charitable intent, such as….
1. A fixed amount of money or designated property
a. “I give to the Niagara County SPCA, EIN #16-0743092, located in Niagara Falls, New York, $____________ (or describe the real or personal property, including exact location).
2. A percentage of the estate
a. “I give to the Niagara County SPCA, EIN #16-0743092, located in Niagara Falls, New York, ________% of my estate.”
3. A residual bequest
a. “I give all the residue of my estate, including real and personal property, to the Niagara County SPCA, EIN #16-0743092, located in Niagara Falls, New York.”
We are encouraging you to plan with us. Please consider the following:
If you are in a position to do something wonderful now, that’s great. We have some ideas of how you could help and we’d be glad to hear what you have in mind as well. We know that some gifts will arrive down the road, but we are committed to our mission today, tomorrow and into the future.
Niagara SPCA's mission would not be possible without the entire community. Our shelter relies almost entirely on private gifts for our funding and operating a no-kill shelter requires significantly more resources because some of our furry friends end up being with us for a while longer than we'd like. Funding from animal lovers like yourself is crucial in allowing us to help shelter pets in need. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
