A major gift, such as one to establish a permanent endowment, should be done with thoughtful consideration.
WHEN TO GIVE
You may create your fund now, establish it in your estate plans, or create it through a trust arrangement that could benefit your family as well as charity. Tax deductions are earned at the time of your gift, while grants awarded from your fund will continue into the future.
WHAT TO GIVE
Many types of assets can be used to start your fund. We can also discuss options such as bequests and charitable remainder trusts. Also see Ways to Give.
NAME YOUR FUND
You may choose the name of your fund. You might choose a family name, one that describes your fund’s charitable purpose, or one that provides inspiration. The name of your grant will be carried on with every grant awarded from your fund…forever.
CHOOSE A TYPE OF FUND
We offer a variety of fund types to meet our donors' different charitable interests. See the various Types of Funds.
CONSULT YOUR PROFESSIONAL ADVISOR
We always encourage you to consult your professional advisor when considering charitable gifts. We are committed to partnering with you and your advisor to best accomplish your wishes.
Philanthropy is the rent we pay for the joy and privilege we have for our space on this earth.
