Frequently Asked Questions

Pay tribute to friends or loved ones through a charitable gift. Whether in sympathy, as a living memorial or in honor of a birthday or special occasion, your gift is an example of your loving concern for others. A gift in memory included in your will extends your personal influence beyond your lifetime and provides ongoing support to people in need.

Planned annual gifts of cash or securities are the most common form of giving. Gifts linked to retirement plans, life insurance, charitable annuities or remainder trusts help fulfill charitable wishes while enhancing your financial security.

To receive more information about estate planning, bequests, retirement assets and more, email us at, or talk with your personal financial planner or estate advisor for independent advice.

Memorial and tribute gifts are announced via special cards sent to family members. The cards may list contributors or you may choose to remain anonymous. The specific gift amount is not mentioned, yet a dignified and meaningful message informs the card recipient of your memorial or tribute.
