Choose what to give

Nearly any asset can be converted to do good, often with tax and estate-planning benefits. Friends and family can also give to your fund.

Cash
You can make contributions at any time, including online.

Securities
Gifting securities — public, closely held and restricted stock — can be a highly tax effective way for you to do more good.

Real estate
Gifts of land, vacation homes, commercial properties and primary residences may be the most advantageous way for you to capitalize your charitable fund.

Tangible property
From artwork to jewelry to antiques, you may have personal belongings that could be doing a world of good.

Retirement plans
You can name the Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or make donations from your IRA into your charitable fund (except donor-advised funds, which cannot accept IRA contributions).

Life insurance
You can name the Foundation as a beneficiary or donate your fully funded policy during your lifetime.

Royalties
Income from royalties and distribution rights can be directed into your charitable fund.

Private foundation
Convert your private foundation to a donor-advised fund so you can focus on your giving while we handle the administration.



...and when

 

We can help you experience the joy of giving today, and we welcome the opportunity to talk with you and your trusted advisors about including charitable giving in your estate plans.

Bequest

Consider a gift to the Foundation in your will or trust, and join hundreds of forward-looking New Hampshire donors who have made sure their generosity continues forever.

Charitable remainder trust

You or your named beneficiaries receive income for a determined period of time, with the principal coming to the Foundation later to support the causes you name.

Charitable gift annuity

You make a gift now and receive income for life, and the Foundation uses the balance later to support the causes you name.
