Types of Gifts

There are many ways to give, places to give, and types of gifts. All gifts made to Freed-Hardeman can be broken down into two main categories.

  • Annual Gifts
  • Planned Gifts


Annual gifts are gifts expended in the year they are given. Annual gifts can include cash, collectibles, gift-in-kind, transfers of stock, paid up life insurance policies, and retirement plan assets. To learn more about annual gifts and how to make an annual gift visit our Annual Gifts page.
