Give to Your Fullest Potential

You have a variety of ways to make a gift to open your fund.

While cash and stocks are the most common, there are many advantages of giving other assets, like retirement assets, farm equipment or real estate. Many of these options can provide you with income during your lifetime, significant tax benefits — or both.
