Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
Check Out This Potential Scenario
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium for its tireless efforts to better his community through their care for the animals and education and conservation efforts. So Sarah decided to make a gift to The Zoo Society in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
