Giving & Planning
Since 1991, we have helped people just like you – individuals, families, and businesses – make a real difference in the lives of others through charitable giving. Whether you want to support your favorite causes today, or are planning for the future, we can help you create a customized fund that will simplify your giving and create an impact on the causes you care most about.
We Make Giving Easy
We make it easy for you to give back to this community, now and for generations. We take all of the administrative details, investment issues, reporting and regulatory requirements off your hands. Simply decide the charitable purpose of your fund, and we do the rest. A single gift can create a fund that will further your personal giving goals in perpetuity.
We Counsel and Connect
We can help you clarify your charitable goals so the causes you care most about are supported in perpetuity, and we can help build connections with organizations and causes you may not be aware of that supporting the needs of our community.
We Provide Professional Grantmaking Assistance
The Community Foundation will support you and your grantmaking by ensuring that your gift goes to a qualified charitable nonprofit.
We Can Involve Your Family
A family advised fund can provide the benefits of a private foundation without the hassles and expense, and can involve several generations of advisors to facilitate a family tradition of giving. See types of funds.
Create a Permanent Legacy For Your Charitable Interests
We will work with you and/or your professional advisor to create a customized endowment fund for the future that will benefit your favorite causes, in your name, forever. It’s easy to do with a will or trust and you won’t need to part with any assets you may currently need.
If You Have a Professional Advisor
If you have a professional advisor, the Foundation can work with both of you in a variety of ways to help achieve your charitable giving goals.
