A variety of giving methods tailored to your unique situation.

Bequest by Will

A legacy of giving.
Including a charitable bequest in your will is a simple way to make a lasting gift to your community. When you make this gift through your community foundation, we establish a special fund that benefits the community forever and becomes your personal legacy of giving. Learn More...

Charitable Remainder Trust

Planning for the future — for you and your community.
Giving through a Charitable Remainder Trust allows you to receive income for the rest of your life, knowing that whatever remains will benefit your community. Learn More...

Charitable Lead Trust

Giving back to community and your loved ones.
A Charitable Lead Trust helps you build a charitable fund with your community foundation during the trust’s term. When the trust terminates, the remaining assets are transferred to you or your heirs, often with significant transfer-tax savings.

There is so much more we’d like you to know.
