Gifts Anyone Can Make

Did you know there are ways to support our community that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's financial security?

  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
  • You can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
  • You don't have to use cash to make your gift: you can "buy low and give high" by making your gift with appreciated securities instead.
  • You can gift an asset you no longer need or want.

Gifts Through Your Will
Give to our community without affecting your cashflow during your lifetime. (Sample Bequest Language)

Appreciated Securities
The IRS allows its most significant tax breaks for gifts of appreciated securities.

Life Insurance

  • New Policy - You can fund a future gift for us and deduct premium payments.
  • Paid-Up Policy - Give us a policy whose coverage you no longer need.

Real Estate
Make a substantial gift to our community through a transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.

Retirement Plans
The balance of your retirement plan may be worth more when donated to our community than to your heirs.
