The thought occurs to me that as long as you don't get tied up in life
insurance and legal expenses and use a trust, you could start a trust fund
and switch between organisations as it grows large enough. (You could still
do it if you chose the life ins. route, although the relatively slow growth
would mean it'd be a long time before you got past whatever minimum you
chose.) Even if you don't chose an organisation right at the moment, get
your trust fund started. Please look at

where to invest and how to start a trust fund with as little as $3,000.
