Ways of Giving
Tip of the Week
You don't have to be wealthy to be generous.
At American Rivers, we know many of our friends and supporters want to give generously to support our mission but may not have a chunk of extra cash lying around. That's why we offer techniques that maximize your ability to be generous. For example:
- Give appreciated assets instead of cash.
- Make us a beneficiary of your will or revocable trust.
- Use life insurance to give from income rather than capital.
Want to make a gift that really makes a difference? We're here to help you make it happen.
