Cash
The simplest way to make a gift to the Foundation is with cash.

Pledge
Multi-year commitments are welcomed to support special projects or campaigns.

Bequest - A Gift in Your Will
You may designate the Foundation as a beneficiary of your estate to receive a certain dollar amount or to be the residuary or contingent beneficiary.

Appreciated Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks & bonds) offer a double tax advantage to you.

Life Insurance
You may donate an existing, paid-up policy or you may take out a new insurance policy naming the Foundation as owner and beneficiary.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

This option is for individuals who need to maximize their income but would still like to make a charitable gift with their assets. When you establish a charitable remainder trust with yourself or a financial institution serving as trustee, you receive an income tax deduction.

Gifts from Retirement Accounts

If you accumulated significant assets in a retirement account, you may want to consider designating the foundation as a beneficiary of the account. Your estate will receive a deduction for estate taxes and the foundation will not incur taxable income.

Other Gifts
If you have questions about other gifts (for example, real or personal property, artwork, etc.), please contact the Foundation at 304-630-3043.
