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

Liquid Assets

Cash, credit card, check, or publicly traded securities can easily be used to add philanthropic resources to your fund. Click here for Wire Transfer Instructions. 

Other Assets

Closely held stock, real estate, or other real assets.

Private Foundation Assets

Your client’s existing private foundation may also be converted into a component fund within The Community Foundation. This enables your client 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, Vice President of Development and Senior Philanthropic Advisor at (202)-263-4766 or
