  • Gift of life insurance with the program named as beneficiary
  • Real estate gifted to the program
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Bequests of estate assets which may include stocks, certificates of deposit and other securities, or cash
  • Certain qualified retirement plans, IRA's, etc.
  • Memorials or gifts of cash
