What to Give

Once you choose to partner with us, we can accept gifts of all sizes and types. These gifts can be used to set up a charitable fund now, or later as part of your estate plans. Since the Community Foundation is recognized as a public charity by the IRS, you will receive the maximum tax benefits allowed by law.

IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover is now a permanent provision of the Tax Code. A taxpayer 70 1/2 or older may annually transfer up to $100,000 from an IRA directly to a qualifying nonprofit as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). At age 72, a QCD may satisfy applicable Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) requirements, allowing the taxpayer to give more to favorite charities and possibly reduce income taxes. 

Gifts counted toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) must be made directly to the Community Foundation.

To initiate a gift from your IRA, please contact your IRA custodian.

Other Non-Cash Gifts

We also have experience in accepting a variety of complex gifts such as personal property, life insurance, privately held stock or interest in limited partnerships.

Planned Gifts

We invite you to explore the benefits of planned giving. You can leave a legacy or add to an existing fund by including the Community Foundation in your will or living trust. Or, you may choose to take advantage of a charitable vehicle that allows you to provide for your loved ones, while reducing taxes and supporting your favorite charitable organizations or causes.
