- Gift Annuity—Your gift generates lifetime dividends at a guaranteed rate based on your age at the time of enrollment. Ideal for persons over 65. Minimum participation is $5,000.
- Charitable Remainder Trust—A trust can be tailored to your specific needs to produce income now or provide for your family later. Minimum participation is $100,000.
- Bequests—Bequests are a wonderful way to ensure that the issues and people you care about will continue to be supported in the future. By planning now, you can also help reduce potential tax burdens, and ensure that more of your estate goes to the people and organizations you care about. Remember HKSB in your will.
