Ways to Give

Gifts of Securities

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to the Columbus Public Schools Foundation.

Gifts In Your Will

You designate Columbus Public Schools Foundation as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust or beneficiary designation form.

Gifts of Real Estate

Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to the Columbus Public Schools Foundation.

Gifts of Retirement Assets

Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift.

Gifts of Cash

A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift.

Gifts of Life Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to charity. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.

Gifts of Ag Commodities

Farmers and ranchers can save significant taxes by contributing commodities such as corn or cattle instead of making a cash contribution after selling the commodities.

Gifts of Closely Held Stock

When it is time to transfer business ownership – whether to create income for retirement or to pass on an inheritance – business owners have special opportunities to give something back to their hometown.

Gifts of Tangible Property

Gifts of tangible personal property present the collector and creator with opportunities to use their collections – large and small - for personal and charitable purposes during their lifetimes and as a part of their overall estate planning.
