Gifts of Real Estate

Gifts of real estate enable donors to make a bigger charitable difference than they thought possible. If given as a bequest it can reduce estate taxes and minimize or eliminate a burden placed on heirs.

Gift of Life Insurance

If you own an existing life insurance policy you may consider donating it to charity. Donations of existing life insurance policies to registered charities are typically receipted at fair market value. This valuable gift to charity can lead to significant tax savings. 

Charitable Bequest
Leave a Bequest

Leaving a gift of assets through your will means you can support the causes and issues you care about for the future. You may designate a specific sum of money, or a particular asset, or a percentage or residue from your estate, and create impact well past your lifetime.
