Ways To Give

Bequest By Will:  You can make a charitable gift by designating a percentage or a specific dollar amount of your estate.  This type of gift qualifies for the charitable estate tax deduction.

Beneficiary Designations:  Many financial accounts, CDs, mutual funds, annuities and life insurance policies allow you to make a charitable gift using beneficiary designations.

Appreciated Property:  Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real property qualify for a charitable income tax deduction, avoid capital gains taxes and reduce potential estate taxes.

Retirement Plans:  You can make a charitable gift using the beneficiary designation of your IRA, 401 (K) or other retirement plan.  This type of gift avoids estate and income taxation on the assets accumulated tax-free during your lifetime.

Gifts of Life Insurance:  Life insurance offers flexible ways to make a charitable gift of a new or existing policy.

Gifts That Provide Income:  You can make a gift now, get immediate tax benefits, ensure that you or a loved one receives income payments for life and make a future charitable gift.
