What to Give

The simplest way to support Butler is through cash gifts. But creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds, and property (real estate and personal property such as artwork). These provide you with charitable deductions and can offer additional tax savings as well.

Choose the category of assets below that best fits your situation.
