Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.

Cash

One of the most common ways to make a gift to The Roswell Park Alliance Foundation is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting The Roswell Park Alliance Foundation.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding Roswell Park's future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.
