Ways to give:

Leave a bequest

Providing for GREY2K USA Worldwide in your will is a “greyt” way to support greyhound advocacy. Here is our identification information:

GREY2K USA Worldwide
P.O. Box F
7 Central Street
Arlington, MA 02476
781- 488-3526
EIN. No. 04-3554776

Because the laws governing wills and bequests may vary from state to state, we strongly recommend that you consult with independent legal counsel. Simply ask your attorney to include a bequest to GREY2K USA Worldwide in your current will or trust. You may also instruct counsel to add a codicil (addendum) that inserts new provisions into an existing testamentary document.

Add a beneficiary to your retirement plan

By naming GREY2K USA Worldwide a beneficiary of your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension, or other retirement plan(s), you can make a significant charitable gift while leaving other assets to your heirs. Many plans simply require you to fill out a form listing GREY2K USA Worldwide as a beneficiary. Please check with your plan administrator or financial advisor for the best way to add or change beneficiaries of each plan.

Make a gift of stock

When you choose to make a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or exchange traded funds, you can make a significant impact on our mission while also avoiding state and federal taxes on capital gains! Particularly given proposed changes to tax law in 2021, this is a great time to help the greyhounds and reduce your tax burden at the same time. Please email christine@grey2kusa.org for our brokerage information.

Make an outright gift

GREY2K USA Worldwide is a non-profit 501(c)4 advocacy organization located at 7 Central Street, Arlington, Massachusetts 02476. 100% of donations support our mission to end dog racing, pass greyhound protection laws and promote greyhound adoption. We are grateful for personal and corporate contributions. Because GREY2K USA lobbies for greyhound legislation, contributions are not tax deductible.

About Brooklyn

Brooklyn

Brooklyn was rescued from the only legal dog track in China after the success of an eight-year lobbying effort to close the Canidrome. The "Rescue Brooklyn" campaign of 2018 succeeded in safely airlifting 532 greyhounds to adoption groups around the world. But Brooklyn was no sooner at home with GREY2K founders Christine Dorchak and Carey Theil, when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Brooklyn's leg was amputated, he endured weeks of chemotherapy and then participated in a new program aimed at arresting canine cancer.

After a full year of health and happiness, Brooklyn suffered a stroke while playing with his grey sister, Gina. Eleven-year-old Brooklyn is now in recovery once more. The resilience of this beautiful dog inspires us to keep fighting for all his brothers and sisters worldwide.
