Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.


One of the most common ways to make a gift to Westminster Ingleside Foundation is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving long-term appreciated stock is one of the most tax advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting Westminster Ingleside Foundation.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding Westminster Ingleside Foundation’s future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to Westminster Ingleside Foundation.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support Westminster Ingleside Foundation.

Refundable Entrance Fee

Most residents in our three Ingleside communities have a material asset held by their community per their Residency Agreement called a refundable entrance fee. During a resident’s lifetime, this asset accrues no interest and it is not indexed for inflation. Upon leaving a community (either moving out or passing) the refundable entrance fee is returned, less any expenses due to the communities, to the resident(s) or the resident’s estate.

IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA charitable rollover (also called the Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to Westminster Ingleside Foundation.
