How to Give

We are pleased that you have an interest in learning about the legacy gift options at A New Leaf. If you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit through a planned gift, please contact Erika A. Albini at or at 702-385-0072 ext 110. Help secure the future of The Shade Tree Mission by giving a Legacy Gift listed below.

One of the easiest ways to give a gift is to name A New Leaf as a beneficiary in your will or trust. You may designate an amount or percentage, or even help a specific program. It costs you nothing today. If you have already listed A New Leaf as one of your beneficiaries, please contact us so that we can thank you.

Insurance Gift
You may name A New Leaf as the sole beneficiary or as an additional beneficiary of an insurance policy with a designated amount or percentage.

IRA Rollover
If you are an IRA owner, aged 70 1/2 and older, you may donate up to $100,000 from your IRA to A New Leaf without having to count the distributions as taxable income. Normally these distributions are subject to income tax.

Charitable Gift Annuities
Receive a tax deduction and make a gift that pays you back for life. You will receive an immediate charitable tax deduction and potential savings in capital gains and estate tax while collecting timely, fixed payments for you and/or your spouse’s lifetimes. Please note the new tax law change in effect for 2018 has increased the Standard deduction to $12,000 so most people will no longer itemize deductions and this takes away the Charitable Gift Contribution deduction for most people

Charitable Trusts
Charitable Remainder Trusts provide income to the donor (or the donor’s designees) and provide an income tax deduction. Charitable Lead Trusts combine income to The Shade Tree for a term of years with a distribution of principal back to the donor or family, often with substantial tax benefits.

Please talk to your financial advisor about your options and the benefits of leaving a legacy. We look forward to helping you.

Sponsoring a birthday party for our children living at the shelter is one of the ways we are encouraging our supporters to give back.

At The Shade Tree, we believe that a child’s birthday is a very special day that should be celebrated!


The last weekend of every month, The Shade Tree recognizes the children currently at the shelter, who have a birthday that particular month, by including them in the Birthday Bunch and by throwing a party we call the BIRTHDAY BUNCH BASH!

If you are interested in sponsoring part of the bash such as providing food, drinks or many other items a party needs or evento spearhead the fun, please Contact the Public Relations Office at The Shade Tree by emailing or calling 702.385.0072 ext. 203


Your donation is used:
  • as restricted funds to support the Birthday Bunch.
  • to support a monthly Bash that doesn’t have a sponsor.
  • in the case, a sponsor cancels due to unforeseen circumstances. 

Approximate cost for a group birthday party is $350, however, any donation is greatly appreciated.
