What to Give

We often think only of cash when making charitable contributions; however, our greatest ability to make the most impactful charitable gift are often tied up in non-liquid assets. Below are a few examples.

As with any planned (current or deferred) gift, it is important and helpful that you reach out to include us as part of this confidential and important process. When we are aware of your intent and purpose, we are far more likely to be able to carry out and ensure your desired wishes. If you have already or will soon make a planned gift, please complete this Declaration of Intent Form and contact us to confidentially discuss your intentions.

  • Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
    Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a lasting impact on waterfowl and wetland research and conservation.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to ensure a bright future for ducks and duck hunters.
  • Gifts of Retirement Assets
    Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a lasting impact.
  • Gifts of Cash
    A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make an immediate impact on wetland and waterfowl conservation.
  • Gifts of Insurance
    A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to Delta. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.
