Plan Your Gift

Planned giving allows you to make a charitable gift in a way that provides maximum benefit to the charity and to the donor. These gifts usually involve major assets and require thoughtful consideration. They can take many forms, including:

  • Bequests
  • Retirement plan assets
  • Life insurance
  • Life income gifts, such as gift annuities and charitable trusts
