Your Gift. Your Choice. Your TRF.
When you make a gift to the TRF, you make a gift of life to nearly 850 retired Thoroughbreds. And you give second chances to incarcerated men and women who benefit so greatly from working with our horses. Among the many convenient ways to give are:
- Online a via our secure online giving page.
- By Check made payable to the TRF and mailed to:
Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation P.O. Box 834 Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
- By Credit Card: the TRF accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. One-time gifts can be made online or by calling TRF at (518) 266-0028.
- Appreciated Stock: Please contact Diana Pikulski at (518) 226-0028 or diana(at)trfinc.org for instructions on how to make a stock transfer. If you wish to make a gift of stock in certificate form, or if you have any questions, please contact Linda.
- Via Matching Gifts from Your Employer – Many employers match employee contributions non-profit organizations like the TRF, so don’t miss out on this easy opportunity to double the impact of your gift. Information should be available to you through your HR office.
You can also help sustain the TRF by:
- Donating an Asset – The simplest way to support the TRF is through cash gifts. But creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds, and property (e.g., real estate as well as personal property such as artwork). These can not only provide you with charitable deductions, but often offer additional tax savings.
- Bequest – By remembering the TRF in your will, you may be able to secure a charitable estate-tax deduction for the value of the gift. Best of all, you will know that your generosity will support the TRF for years to come and leave a lasting legacy. For including the TRF in your future plans, you will be recognized as a member of the TRF’s legacy society, The Promised Road Society. You can download simple bequest language here:
- Giving Retirement Plan Benefits – You may consider using retirement plan benefits to make a significant gift that will support the TRF. Because of the estate and income tax treatment of retirement plan benefits, the cost of your gift to your estate and heirs is often relatively small.
