Will or Living Trust

The most common way donors make planned gifts is through their will or living trust. You can include FISOP in your will or revocable trust for a specific amount or allocate a percentage of your estate. FISOP can provide suggested language to assist you and your attorney.

Retirement Benefit or Life Insurance Policy

You can name FISOP as a beneficiary of all or a percentage of your retirement funds, life insurance policy, or other financial instruments. 

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds are investment accounts managed by an outside party and are used for the purpose of charitable giving. Donors can allocate the entire fund, or a portion of the fund, to FISOP.

Gifts of Stock or Appreciated Securities

Gifts of stock or appreciated securities are other ways to make a gift to FISOP that can also provide the donor tax advantages.
