Create Your Own Fund
At The Community Foundation, we can tailor a charitable giving solution for you, to help you make a difference in ways that have meaning for you, and those who benefit from your generosity. It’s easy to get started.
First consider what you want to achieve.
Do you want to: Give back to the community by creating a fund to meet its needs? Remember or honor a loved one? Maximize tax advantages? Ensure that a favorite cause or organization will receive support far into the future? Streamline charitable giving at your corporation? Find a way to involve family members in philanthropy? Give complex assets? Explore planned giving opportunities?
We can help achieve any of these goals.
Next decide how and when you want to give.
You can start a fund with cash, securities, or real estate, or a deferred gift using a vehicle such as a trust, insurance policy or IRA. Have you thought about a bequest through your will?
We have the agility and systems to accept a wide variety of gifts.
We can help you think through these questions, and if you choose, consult with a professional advisor such as your CPA, financial planner or estate planning attorney.
