Benefits of Using the Community Foundation
The Community Foundation is unique in the range and depth of services that we offer individuals and organizations who want to make a lasting difference. The Community Foundation offers trusted, local expertise and the personalized service you want to create a charitable legacy in which you can take genuine pride.
Our staff consists of dedicated, experienced professionals who help our donors attain their philanthropic goals and are committed to helping you:
- through knowledge of community issues, opportunities and resources;
- by providing the expertise of a CPA who can help you and your financial advisor customize your charitable giving or estate planning;
- by ensuring the timely and accurate processing of your grants to nonprofits and thorough due diligence;
- by focusing on local nonprofits and encouraging cooperative dialogue and approaches to key issues.
Our staff and governing board are made up of knowledgeable, concerned community citizens and volunteers like yourself, living in Jackson Hole. We quickly identify local and regional issues to make grants where they will do the most good.
Whether you want to give now or in the future, locally, nationally or world-wide, we can create a customized charitable giving plan that makes your philanthropic vision a reality. You can be as involved in your charitable giving as you wish.
We will meet with you individually or with your financial advisor to discuss your charitable giving needs and how we can best fulfill them and make the most of your philanthropic dollars.
You decide when or whether you want to be recognized for your giving or remain anonymous. You can feel secure in knowing that your personal information will never be disclosed.
Immediate Tax Deductions
Because the Community Foundation is a public charity, donations qualify for the maximum available deduction for charitable contributions in the year when the gift is made. We can also offer solutions to help reduce your estate-tax liability.
