Getting Started on a Planned Gift

We’ve partnered with FreeWill to help make planned giving as simple as possible. Use these free tools to gain great tax savings, while supporting Redwood:

  • Give from your IRA: Redwood supporters 70.5 or older can create tax-wise gifts from their IRAs to make an immediate impact, and potentially stay in a lower income bracket come filing time.
  • Donate appreciated stocks: Many Redwood supporters donate stocks from their portfolio to save on two types of taxes, while maximizing their impact.
  • Retirement Plans: Name Redwood as a beneficiary of your retirement plan. Get started here.
  • Securities: Donate stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Get started here.
