Ways to Give


Bequest

You designate our organization as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust or other instrument.

Donor Advised Fund

With a donor-advised fund (DAF) you can make gifts to charity during your lifetime and, when you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.

Charitable Gift Annuity

You transfer your cash or appreciated property to our organization in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed income (with rates based on your age) for the rest of your life.

Charitable Unitrust

You transfer your cash or appreciated property to fund a charitable trust. The trust sells your property tax free and provides you with income for life or a term of years.

Charitable Annuity Trust

You transfer your cash or appreciated property to fund a charitable trust. The trust sells your property tax free and provides you with fixed income for life or a term of years.

Charitable Lead Trust

You transfer your cash or property to fund a lead trust that makes gifts to us for a number of years. You receive a charitable deduction for the gift. Your family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.

Sale and Unitrust

If you give a portion of your property to us to fund a charitable remainder trust, when the entire property sells you receive cash and income for life.

Bargain Sale

We purchase your property for less than fair market value. You receive the cash and a charitable deduction for the difference between the market value and purchase price.

Give it Twice Trust

You may be looking for a way to provide your children with income while making a gift to charity. The Give it Twice Trust is a popular option that allows you to transfer your IRA at death to a term of years unitrust.

Life Estate Reserved

You may desire to leave your home or farm to us at your death, but would like to receive a current charitable tax deduction. A life estate reserved might offer the solution you need!
