Planned Giving


Gifts received through wills, trusts, and planned giving can provide a financial foundation to make possible the many programs MHF offers for both people and animals. Make a difference today and tomorrow for animals in need when you make a planned gift. Friends who include us in planned giving enjoy the quiet satisfaction of helping us continue to provide for future generations.


Bequests & Estates


Many people search for ways to commemorate the life of a loved one and to make a lasting statement in their honor. A bequest is often the ideal way to make a gift of significance. Leave a legacy with a bequest to MHF in your will.


DAF Direct

What is a Donor Advised Fund?


  • A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to the Middleburg Humane Foundation, directly from your DAF.

How does it work?

  • Establish your Donor Advised Fund by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program

  • Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free)

  • Recommend grants to qualified public charities of your choice


Main Advantages of a Donor Advised Fund

  • Simplicity – The DAF sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.

  • Flexibility – Timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision making.

  • Tax-efficiency– Contributions are tax-deductible and any investment growth in the DAF is

  • tax-free. It is also easy to donate long-term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains

  • taxes and allowing you to support multiple charities from one block of stock.

  • Family legacy – A DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.

  • No start-up costs – There is no cost to establish a donor advised fund.

  • No transaction fees – Once approved, 100% of your recommended grant goes to your qualified public charity of choice.

  • Privacy if desired – Donors may choose to remain anonymous to the grant recipient.
