Why work with the Community Foundation when your clients are interested in charitable giving?
We are your charitable giving expert resource.
Together we can make more good happen!
It is easy to help a client set up a charitable fund, and it can be accomplished in less than a day.
- Decide what type of contribution the client would like to use to establish the fund. A donor can contribute cash, securities, or other property.
- Select a name for the fund. Clients can use their own name, the name of a family member or one they invent.
- Designate current fund advisors such as the client and spouse, and successor advisors such as children.
- Complete and sign a simple governing document that we will provide and help customize for the donor.
Once a fund is established, donors may:
- Add to the fund at any time in any dollar amount.
- Specify how grant disbursements are to be acknowledged: in the name of the fund or anonymously.
- The donor advisor may recommend distributions from their fund to charities, locally or throughout the United States.
To get started, explore a donation option or discuss a situation, call Chris Askin, CEO at 775-333-5499 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
