Planned Giving Options

In this section, we invite you to explore the benefits of planned giving. You can leave a legacy by including The Community Foundation in your will or living trust.  Or, you may choose to take advantage of a charitable vehicle that allows you to provide for your loved ones, while reducing taxes and supporting your favorite charitable organizations or causes. 

Deferred Gifts

Many donors choose to leave charitable assets upon their deaths. After making sure that your loved ones have been cared for, you can use a variety of assets to leave your legacy.
