Investing in the Vision

How can you make a Difference?

FamilyIf you are looking for ways that you, your family, your business or your nonprofit organization can leave a legacy in our community, we offer a variety of tools for giving to make a difference – both now and into the future.

The Community Foundation staff can help you choose the type of fund to create – or the existing funds to support – based on your philanthropic goals and interests. Funds can be established during your lifetime or by bequest with gifts of cash, publicly held securities, privately held stock, real estate or personal property.

BeachEstablishing your own named charitable fund does not require great wealth and it isn't complicated. Plus,

  • You can provide ongoing support to your favorite organizations
  • You can choose different nonprofit organizations each year during your lifetime
  • You can make your own choices, or take advantage of our staff's expertise to help you address the community's most pressing challenges
  • You have the opportunity to distribute gifts during your lifetime or to leave a lasting legacy in your will - or both

We are here to help with all aspects of your charitable giving.   If you have any questions about becoming a donor that have not been answered in this section, please click here to Contact Us for more information.
