Community Enhancement Funds have the greatest flexibility in responding to the community’s needs today and in the future – through the awarding of grants for programs and projects that enhance the quality of life for everyone.
Donor Advised Funds allow donors to recommend grants to charitable organizations and programs that are meaningful to them. The Community Foundation offers endowed and non-endowed Donor Advised fund options to accommodate varying giving needs.
Restricted & Field of Interest Funds allow donors to identify and support a particular charitable organization or field of interest through the fund’s annual distribution.
Scholarship Funds allow donors the opportunity to provide grants for educational purposes, assisting individuals from preschool to postgraduate.
Fiscal Sponsorship Funds benefit a specific community fundraising effort within a defined time period.
A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year’s tax return.
A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
Charitable Gift Annuities allow you to make a gift of cash or property to your Community Foundation now, get immediate tax benefits, and ensure that you or the people you designate receive fixed quarterly or annual income payments for life.
