How to Give

  1. Bequests > 

    Bequests enable many individuals to make significant gifts that they could not have made during life. Bequests and living trusts to support the mission can take various forms, such as specific bequests, general bequests, residual bequests and contingent bequests.

  2. Charitable Gift Annuity > 

    The charitable gift annuity is among the oldest, simplest and most popular of the charitable life-income plans.  In exchange for a transfer of cash, marketable securities, or in some cases real estate, we can contractually guarantee to make specific annuity payments to you and or another beneficiary for life.

  3. Charitable Remainder Trusts >

    The charitable remainder trust is similar to other types of trusts, except that a charitable beneficiary, such as the institution receives what is left in the trust after it terminates.  The primary feature is that it provides a variable stream of income to the beneficiary over time.

  4. Charitable Lead Trust > 

    The Charitable Lead Trust may appeal to individuals who wish to make a gift but retain the property in their family.  You can transfer cash or property to fund a trust that makes gifts to the mission for a number of years.
