Retirement Plans

Make a Gift Through Your Retirement Plans

You may leave a gift to Carolina Tiger Rescue through your IRA, 401K, 403B, or other qualified retirement plan. By naming Carolina Tiger Rescue as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, you will be contributing to the future care of the cats and you will be doing so in a tax-efficient manner.

Many retirement assets have not been subject to income tax, so they are generally taxed when they are withdrawn for distribution. However, if you leave retirement assets to a charity, like Carolina Tiger Rescue, the charity will not have to pay any tax at all.

It is easy to designate Carolina Tiger Rescue as a full, partial, or contingent beneficiary of your retirement plan assets. The financial institution that holds your account can provide you with a Beneficiary Designation Form – often these forms are available online.

In naming Carolina Tiger Rescue as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, please use the following information to ensure that your gift is made:

Official name: Carolina Tiger Rescue

Address: 1940 Hanks Chapel Rd., Pittsboro, NC  27312

Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN):  56-1522499 (sometimes called Employer Identification Number, or EIN)

If you have named Carolina Tiger Rescue as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, please let us know so we can thank you and include you as a member of the Sanctuary Stewards.

If you have questions about including Carolina Tiger Rescue as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, please contact Heidi Zangara , Planned Giving Manger.

Wildlife should be in the Wild

Rescue

Education

  • We believe the ideal home for wildlife is in the wild.
  • We believe it is critical to conserve their native habitats.
  • We believe wild animals should not be kept as pets.
  • We believe captive breeding should ONLY be done in accordance with Species Survival plans.
  • We believe all wild animals, both captive and in their native habitats, deserve to be treated with respect and not exploited for entertainment and commercial purposes.

Public Tours

Twilight Tours

Coming out for a tour is a great way to learn more about the animals that call Carolina Tiger Recue home. We offer many different types of tours.  Public tours are great for adults and families. Twilight tours are for adults only (18 years of age and older). Tiger Tales are a perfect option if you want to bring out really young children. Find the tour that is right for you and enjoy a walk through the sanctuary.

For all tours, tickets must be purchased in advance.

Virtual Field Trips

Education is key to our mission.  We enjoy teaching "kids" of all ages!  Our field trips, both virtual and onsite, are ideal for groups of kids.  Our "Kid for a Day" Adult Camp provides a unique learning opportunity while allowing adults to channel their inner child.  While all of these opportunities are structured differently, in the end we want everyone to walk away knowing more about the animals we care for and what they can do to help protect them.
