Types of Gifts
The Community Foundation has the technical expertise and resources to accept any appropriate asset as a charitable contribution. We regularly work with donors and their professional advisors to create and execute sophisticated giving strategies. In addition to cash, we regularly accept gifts of:
- Mutual funds
- Restricted stock
- Publicly-traded stock
- Bonds and other debt obligations
- Real estate, complete or partial interests in residential or commercial real estate
- Privately held companies, interests in C-corporations, LLCs, Limited Partnerships
Beneficiary designations in a life insurance policy, bank account, or a retirement plan are also simple and meaningful ways to make a planned gift to the Community Foundation. These allow you to list the Foundation along with others you would like to benefit from the proceeds of the policy or plan. You can name the Foundation as the sole beneficiary or as one of numerous beneficiaries. As well, you can name the Foundation for a percentage or for a specific dollar amount of the proceeds. Just ask the administrator of your policy or plan for a designation form if you wish to make this kind of gift.
Please check the fund(s) you want to support and complete this form. For your protection, all transactions are processed through a VerisSign secure site.
