  • A bequest in your will.
  • Donations of appreciated publicly-traded securities 
  • A life insurance policy 
  • Retirement fund accounts 
  • Real estate (land, primary residences, vacation homes, farm land, etc.) 
  • A Charitable Remainder Trust 
  • A Charitable Lead Trust 

Let us help you create your legacy.
