Ways to Give
Currency, checks, credit cards, or wire transfers are welcomed.
Do you want to increase your contribution to the ’Sconset Trust? Many companies will match an employee’s gift to a non-profit organization on a dollar-for-dollar basis. In some cases, companies will also match the gifts of retired employees. You can call your company’s human resources department to find out if your company has a matching gift program and to determine if your gift qualifies for a match from your employer.

Gifts of Personal Assets and Real Estate
The ’Sconset Trust may accept gifts of personal assets and real estate if the gift is in keeping with our mission.
Planned or Deferred Gift
A planned gift is a gift that is made now and received by the ’Sconset Trust in the future. The most common form of a planned gift is a bequest included in a will. But there are other forms including trusts and annuities. Please contact your financial advisor or attorney to make a planned gift to the ’Sconset Trust.
