Donor Benefits

We provide prompt, personal service, tailored to your charitable and financial objectives. As a local organization with broad knowledge of community issues and needs, we can help you invest in causes that you care most about.

Maximum Tax Advantages

  • If you choose to use appreciated assets to establish your fund, you escape capital gains tax leaving more dollars to support your favorite charities.

  • You may also choose to give larger amounts in good income years to shelter income and then over time, recommend grants to your favorite charities.

  • We invest your charitable dollars allowing you to give away more.

  • You receive a current income tax deduction and the gift to your fund removes assets from your estate thereby reducing future estate tax liabilities.

Organized Charitable Giving

  • You receive one tax receipt for all of your charitable gifts.

  • You receive regular reports showing the charities you are giving to and the amounts given to each.

  • Your charitable fund acts as a buffer for on-the-spot solicitations.
