Bequests

You can name Guide Dogs of Hawaii as a beneficiary under your will in several ways: as the recipient of an outright gift, either in a designated amount or as a percentage of your estate; or as a residuary beneficiary to receive sums after specific amounts have been paid to other beneficiaries. Adding Guide Dogs of Hawaii to your will can be accomplished through a simple codicil without rewriting your entire will.

Life insurance

By transferring your policy to Guide Dogs of Hawaii as owner and beneficiary while remaining the insured, you can deduct the cash value of the policy as a charitable gift. You may also make annual gifts to Guide Dogs of Hawaii, which will be used to pay the policy premiums, and you can deduct these gifts for income tax purposes.

Real estate

Your residence, business, or any other property may have appreciated so significantly in value that its sale would generate a substantial income tax. By making a gift of a full or partial interest in real estate to Guide Dogs of Hawaii, you can avoid tax on the long-term capital gain and generate an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property. It is also possible to make a gift of your primary residence or second home while retaining an exclusive life estate so that you (and your spouse) can continue to use it for the remainder of your lifetime(s) while earning significant tax and estate planning benefits.
