Designing a Gift

The Community Foundation works with donors to make their giving more powerful, effective and easy. We want to help donors find their passion in philanthropy while we provide high-end philanthropic service and fund administration.
The Community Foundation provides an incredibly flexible way for donors to organize their giving. Donors may contribute to a variety of fund types, with both current direct gifts and deferred planned gifts. We are able to accept a wide array of asset types as contributions to a fund.
Because The Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity, donors receive the most valuable tax benefits available under law for their charitable contributions – for both income and estate tax purposes. Once a fund is created, donors receive extensive philanthropic services in exchange for the administrative fee charged against their fund balance. Donors may request that their fund be invested among a selection of investment options, including utilizing their own investment advisor for a $5,000 annual administrative minimum fee. Click here to download a pdf about our Individually Managed Investment Policy.
