Life insurance

Give through your life insurance policy if the policy is no longer needed, or will no longer benefit your survivors. It’s a practical and attainable way for many to make meaningful gifts.

Make a gift of what you grow and harvest, from farm crops like grain to animal products like dairy, honey and more. You can deduct the cost of production from your taxes and you may qualify for other tax benefits as well.
