Philanthropy is uniquely personal.

It reflects your aspirations and values. It expresses your humanity and your empathy. It’s good for your health, your heart, and your soul. But how can you be certain you’ll make the most impact with your contributions?

At the Community Foundation we can help you make your charitable giving purposeful and effective. Our experienced staff provides insight into community needs and prudent due diligence. Whether you’re making an annual gift or creating an endowment, we offer flexible giving options, professional investment management and simplified administration. The benefits are great. The rewards are priceless.

Work with us.
Together we can transform lives.

We make it easy to manage your giving and make your generosity count.
Let’s get started!

1Define Your
Charitable Objectives

Identify where and how you want to make a difference. Decide how involved you (and family members or advisors) want to be both financially and in terms of participation.



2Determine Your
Financial Objectives

Are you looking for any tax or estate planning benefits? If so, we can help you with information about the advantages of different types of gifts so that you can fit your philanthropy into your financial plans for optimal effect.



3Create or
Contribute to a Fund

Once you’ve come up with answers for Steps 1 and 2, we will work with you to create a fund that meets your objectives. Or, if there is an existing fund that meets your needs, your contributions will not require a new fund agreement.



We can help you navigate the logistics related to philanthropy so you can make the difference you are envisioning. To learn more, contact Laurie Andrews or
Erin Lusins at (307) 739-1026.
