Gifts that cost nothing now

Through a provision in your will or living trust you can make a gift to REAL Services in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Consult with your attorney to choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.

Gifts that pay you back

These gift vehicles can provide income benefits comparable to—or in some cases exceeding—those that might be earned in non-charitable vehicles. Many donors establish life income gifts with assets that are producing a very small amount of income, such as cash or appreciated stocks that do not earn dividends.

These popular giving vehicles make an immediate impact on our community through REAL Services.
