Ways To Give


A bequest is a common and simple way to leave a planned gift to First Call through your estate plan or will. There are four ways to leave a bequest: Specific Bequest, Percentage Bequest, Residuary Bequest, or Contingent Bequest


Do you have appreciated property and want to save on taxes while planning for retirement? These trusts are particularly useful for managing capital gains and gift taxes for assets that have appreciated in value


Make an annuity gift now and receive a lifetime income for yourself or a designated loved one in exchange for a gift of cash, stock or securities. Upon your death, the gift remainder supports First Call.


Your retirement or pension plans can help First Call. Funds beyond the comfortable support of yourself or loved ones may be given to First Call and can offer charitable tax benefits to you.


You may also help people well into the future by naming First Call as a beneficiary of any individual or group life insurance policy. You will receive an estate tax deduction for insurance proceeds that go to First Call upon your death.
