Ways of Giving
There are two main types of gifts: Current, or outright gifts and pledges are the most common. Future, or deferred gifts, are another popular way to give.
Current or outright gifts and pledges
These are generally the most common gifts, and are very helpful because they are available for immediate use by Warnborough. They are important in helping us to meet our targets for scholarships, facilities, and services. The two most common forms of outright gifts are cash and appreciated assets. For most donors, gifts of appreciated assets that have been held for more than one year may be a more “tax-wise” gift than cash. Appreciated assets include:
- Publicly traded securities and mutual funds
- Closely-held stock
- Real estate
- Paid-up insurance policies
- Charitable lead trusts
If you are considering a gift of appreciated assets, we will be glad to assist you in completing the transaction.
Future or deferred gifts
Future gifts are those in which the donor retains an interest and the charitable use by Warnborough is deferred to some future time. Common future gifts include:
- Bequests (a gift through your will or estate plan)
- Deferred pledge agreement
- “Pay on death” accounts
- Qualified pension plans
- Personal residence or farm (retained life estate)
- Charitable remainder trusts
- Charitable gift annuities
The WWAA Office can provide you with the appropriate wording for a bequest or deferred pledge agreement and help you explore the benefits of setting up a charitable trust or annuity.
