So Many Ways To Give

There are a number of ways to give through the Foundation and a variety of ways to structure new funds. Some funds help address pressing social and human service needs throughout the county. Others provide scholarships and help promote a range of educational opportunities.

There are permanent and temporary or ‘pass-through’ funds; funds restricted to a specific purpose or organization; and funds that are set up to be used where the need is greatest. Essentially, a fund at the Foundation can be set up for nearly any charitable purpose and can honor a donor’s particular interests.

Additionally, the Foundation is well-suited to facilitate gifts of real estate or business interests and can assists with gift annuities and legacy gifts that often are part of a donor’s estate or tax planning.

And – because the Foundation is a public charity – most gifts qualify the donor for a charitable tax deduction.
