Philanthropy.

Donor Resources

Personalize your impact on the greater good today.

When it comes to identifying the best match for your philanthropic investments, consider us Cupid. With our finger on the pulse of the community, we can advise which nonprofits are most aligned with your goals and values, while ensuring an easier transaction for you and the beneficiary. Tax benefits and warm fuzzies guaranteed.

DONOR ADVISED FUND

Our most popular fund is a Donor Advised Fund, which allows you to contribute assets now and later, as well as receive an immediate tax benefit. It then allows you to recommend grants to charitable organizations at any time.  We recommend a minimum of $10,000 to start a Donor Advised Fund.

FIELD OF INTEREST FUND

A Field of Interest Fund is designed for multiple donors who would like their contributions to benefit a particular area of interest, type of organization, community issue, or geographic area. We have multiple Field of Interest / Community Impact Funds that accept donations. Click here or click the donate button at the top of our website to learn more about our Community Impact Funds.

SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Scholarship Funds can be used to memorialize a family member or support your personal interest. The fund provides educational opportunities for students attending high school, college, university, or vocational schools. You may designate a field of study and choose the eligibility requirements. We recommend a minimum of $10,000 to start a Scholarship Fund.

PLANNED GIVING

The Community Foundation can help you maximize strategic investments now and into the future for the benefit of your family and your community. Your legacy is in good hands with the Community Foundation managing bequests, life insurance payouts, retirement plan gifts, charitable IRA distributions, and much more.

FINANCIAL ADVISORS

The Community Foundation welcomes the opportunity to partner with financial advisors to assist in meeting the charitable investment goals of their clients. We have multiple resources to work alongside advisors to achieve desired investment outcomes, while benefiting the greater community.
