Welcome! Planned gifts are any gifts other than cash and can be current or future gifts. Examples of current planned gifts include gifts of stock, grants from donor advised funds, and qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from IRAs. Examples of future planned gifts include gifts from wills, trusts, or retirement plans. With so many possibilities, there is a planned gift that suits your financial and charitable goals. We invite you to learn more and if you would like to discuss your options please contact:
