Other ways to leave an impact this holiday season


The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The winter holidays are such a wonderful time of the year. As we spend our time with loved ones and friends, gift-giving and celebrating what’s to come, we wanted to share with you some of the lesser-known, but most powerful gifts you could give to our cherished wild horses and burros this holiday season.

Legacy gifts, stock and bond donations, and Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are some especially helpful ways to fuel our work to keep wild horses and burros wild.

Planned gifts like wills and trusts are some of the best ways to help the charities you care about long after your lifetime.


Donating long-term appreciated securities like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds is a great way to support our work to keep these majestic animals wild — and compared to cash, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax donation.


And Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) provide an immediate tax benefit to you and allow you to grant funds to the charities of your choosing, like AWHC!


Special gifts like these help our amazing team implement the best possible programs to protect wild horses and burros. So, as you are planning what gifts you will give this holiday season, consider making one to keep our cherished wild horses and burros in the wild where they belong.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holidays,

Suzanne Roy
Executive Director
American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. Thanks to a special tax provision in the CARES Act, most Americans – regardless of if you itemize your tax deductions – will be able to deduct up to $600 in donations to charities like AWHC on their 2021 federal income tax return. But, this provision expires at the end of the calendar year, so make a donation before December 31 to take advantage of this special tax deduction!
