The Community Foundation is authorized to accept gifts of all kinds. You are encouraged to use the full “menu” of giving vehicles to realize your philanthropic goals. You may establish and make additions to your Fund using both current and deferred gifts.

Adding Assets to Your Fund

Cash, credit card, check, publicly traded securities, or gifts of real property can be used to add philanthropic resources to your fund.

Private Foundation Assets

Your existing private foundation may also be converted into your donor advised fund or supporting organization within The Community Foundation. This enables you to retain the name and purpose of the private foundation while alleviating the administrative and compliance burdens.

Planned Gifts

We can work with you to create any number of planned giving vehicles. To discuss planned giving options, please contact Rebecca Rothey at
