By making a cash gift by check, credit card or money order today, you enable us to meet our most urgent needs and carry out our mission on a daily basis.

A POD bank account or certificate of deposit names one or more persons or charities as the beneficiary of all funds once you, the account owner, pass away. The beneficiary you name has no rights to the funds until after your lifetime. Until that time, you remain in control and are free to use the money in the bank account, change the beneficiary or close the account.
Through a gift in your will or living trust, you can support OPB with a specific amount of money or a percentage of your total estate. This type of gift allows you the flexibility to change your mind at anytime and your estate will benefit from a federal estate tax charitable deduction for the amount of the gift.
One of the most common ways to fund this gift that supports OPB and provides you and/or a loved one with fixed payments for life is with cash in the form of a check. A charitable gift annuity typically works well for those 60 and older.
Cash is the easiest and least complicated way to fund a charitable remainder trust. Oftentimes, it can provide the necessary liquidity to provide for payments to the income beneficiary when the trust is funded with hard to sell assets.
Delay Your Payments
If you are younger than 60 or don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.
