Gifts can take the form of cash, stock (stock donation instructions) or other securities, life insurance or, upon Board approval, certain other assets. You can also make planned gifts through bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, IRAs, or pension funds. We encourage you to discuss planned gifts with your tax or financial advisor. Community Foundation staff are always available to answer questions and provide information to help you choose the right giving option and assist you. Please contact us with questions or concerns as you and your professional advisor discuss tax and estate planning issues related to your gift.
The Community Foundation accepts gifts made on your VISA or MC by phone or through our website here. If you wish to make a gift of anything other than cash, please contact us directly so we can explain the procedure for non-cash gifts.
