Think about planned giving!

After ensuring the well-being of your loved ones, this is one of the simplest and most accessible forms of giving.

Gift of a life insurance policy

Protecting the estate of your heirs, this form of gift allows you to take advantage of tax benefits now in order to make a significant gift upon your death.

Gift of Real Estate

You can give a real estate asset today and continue to use it until your death.

Gift of eligible securities (publicly traded or not)
