Ways You Can Give To BGSU Firelands
- Planned Giving: Planned giving can come in many forms. For some, it may be as simple as including the BGSU Firelands among their beneficiaries through a will, retirement plan or life insurance policy. Others may have entered into a charitable gift annuity or trust arrangement, where they receive an income for life before passing the principal on to BGSU Firelands. Still others have entered into an agreement where they have given their home or farm while retaining its use.
