Ways of Giving

Gifts to the Community Foundation can be made in a variety of ways for a variety of purposes. Giving to the Foundation can be as simple as making a cash gift, in any amount, to one of the existing funds of the Foundation or as sophisticated as donating appreciated property to establish several different funds tailored to fit your philanthropic goals.  Please see Make a Donation for more information on the types of gifts accepted.

A gift to one of its many existing charitable funds will help to increase the amount of targeted grantmaking in the community based on the purpose of the fund.
