Gift Options

All members are asked to consider gifts above and beyond what they give in their regular offerings and other contributions. And there is a variety of ways that gifts can be made.

 •  Long-term subscriptions, or pledges payable over 5 years, are easier for most and essential to meeting our goal, since it would be impractical, if not impossible, to reach our objectives with one-time, out-of-pocket gifts.  Gifts may be made in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual installments at the donor’s discretion.  A 10% initial investment toward your total pledge is requested.

•  Non-cash gifts are an additional or alternative way you can support our cause.  You may, for example, wish to consider gifts “in kind” such as labor and materials; gifts of securities such as stocks and bonds; gifts of real estate or even personal property such as artwork, automobiles, jewelry and antiques.

•  And finally, you can also choose to support our efforts through deferred gifts. These are gifts that can be given or arranged for now, but will not be received until later, and include gifts through a person’s will by bequest, gifts of life insurance policies or annuities, and gifts in trust.
