End-of-Year Giving with Riegel Financial and Roberson Law

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of 2020. As you consider your end of year giving, Riegel Financial would like to remind you that under the CARES Act, while you do not have to make a Required Minimum Distribution this year from your retirement accounts by year-end, you may still want to make an annual charitable gift using a Qualified Charitable Distribution.

Riegel Financial and Roberson Law are proud partners and supporters of SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center, and would like to share why SICSA should be considered for your end-of-year support.

During a time when many non-profits discontinued critical services, SICSA continues to serve the people and pets of our community.

The SICSA Help Center continues to provide essential services to people and pets affected by crisis situations, like domestic violence and temporary financial hardship. Through this program, SICSA offers pet food assistance, temporary placement and care of pets, and critical veterinary services. This year the SICSA Help Center has had over 5,200 contacts and interactions with members of our community. The outcome and assistance includes, but is not limited to, covering up to 100% of the cost of pet-related services for those who have been economically impacted or incapacitated and unable to care for their pets due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Adoptions and Placements at SICSA have continued to see growth month over month.  Going from a 65% decrease in adoptions in the second half of March, to August which tied with the previous record high month for the most number of adoption outcomes in one month, to adopting/placing over 1,020 furry friends this year to date.

In addition, SICSA has provided over 400 Rescue Transfers from high-kill facilities, 1,600 Spay/Neuter Surgeries, and has placed animals in over 550 SICSA Volunteer Foster Homes. Through all of its efforts, this organization truly saves lives.

Roberson Law would like to remind you that support to SICSA can be allocated in your estate planning documents. By listing SICSA as a beneficiary, you are reinforcing your decision to give charitable bequests to SICSA in the future.
