Ways To Give


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.


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


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.


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


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


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.
