Gifts to the Transitions Foundation may be given now… or they may be deferred.

Current Gifts are those that come to the Foundation now … they can be given in a variety of ways:

  • often, current gifts are gifts of cash
  • current gifts may also be made with securities
    (stocks, bonds, mutual funds)
  • current gifts may be made with closely held stock
  • current gifts may also be made with gifts of real or personal property (real estate, jewelry, artwork, collections)
  • current gifts may be made with retirement plan benefits, often providing the donor with tax benefits
  • current gifts may also include in-kind gifts (items or merchandise that can be used in the operation of Transitions’ programs and services)


“… what we have done for
others and the world remains …
and is immortal”

~ Alfred Pine

Deferred Gifts are those that are planned now… but are received by the Foundation at a later date. Deferred gifts are often given as a part of an estate plan.

Deferred gifts enable people, at the end of life, to continue their care and concern for people – children with special needs, adults with mental disabilities, and troubled youth.Will And Pen

Deferred gifts provide enduring support for Transitions’ programs and services… and a deferred gift entitles you to become a member of our Legacy Society.
