3 Ways to Give Other Than Cash

The most common way to provide financial support without writing a check is to designate “Kathy’s House” as a beneficiary in your will or trust. Your estate plan documents can provide a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or what is left (remainder).

Many have found it easy to make a gift of appreciated stock. If you own stock with unrealized gains you can avoid paying capital gains taxes by donating the shares to Kathy’s House.
