powerful and transformative gifts

Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Gift planning allows generous people to make their most powerful and transformative gifts to causes they care about most. The Community Foundation makes it easy.

A planned gift is simply the transfer of assets – for example, cash, real estate, stock or a retirement plan – to a designated nonprofit organization now or after your lifetime. Many Commuity Foundation donors choose to make a gift in their will or trust.

The Community Foundation offers unlimited ways to give. Outright gifts can include cash, securities, real estate, life insurance plans, retirement plans or other assets. Planned gift options can include remainder gifts or gifts that provide income for you now or for your family later. Read about them in greater detail here: Ways to Give

Many Community Foundation donors choose to plan a gift:

  • when their assets are not liquid
  • to receive a tax deduction
  • to generate income while they are giving
