About Bequests

You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support our cause.

IRA Charitable Rollover

An IRA rollover allows people age 70½ and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA.

Gifts of Stock and Bonds

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to our organization.

Donor Advised Funds

You fund a DAF and make charitable gift recommendations during your lifetime. When you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.

Charitable Gift Annuities - Income for Life

You can fund your gift annuity with appreciated assets with the promise of secure fixed payments for the rest of your life.

Beneficiary Designated Giving - Life Insurance / Retirement Accounts / Bank or investment accounts

You can designate us as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account or your life insurance policy.
