Additional Ways to Give


Gifts of Stock

Donations of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds held at least one year) make wonderful gifts to our community foundation. You avoid capital gains taxes on these appreciated securities and support your community at the same time.

IRA Qualified Charitable Contributions

These donations were made permanent by Congress in 2015. If you are 70 ½ years old, gifts up to $100,000 are permitted as direct transfers to a qualified charity from your IRA. These gifts can automatically satisfy our minimum distribution.

Life Insurance

You may name The Community Foundation as a beneficiary of all or a portion of a life insurance policy. Contact your agent to arrange for this simple and efficient way to add to your legacy.
