Other Ways of Giving

Please contact the Foundation using the contact form at the bottom of this page or email us if you'd like to give in any of the following ways:

Appreciated Securities

Donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds may provide you with significant tax benefits.

Real and Personal Property

Real property, such as a vacation home, may be given as an outright gift or the donor may prefer to retain the right to occupy the property for life. Personal property such as paintings and cars also make excellent gifts.

Bequests and Retirement Plans

A bequest permits you to make a significant donation without diminishing the assets available to you during your lifetime. Naming a charity as a beneficiary of your retirement plan may also be a wise tax strategy.
