|Prepare a will, and include a gift for the charity or charities that have made a difference in your life or the life of someone you love. Only 50% of those who pass away have a will, and fewer than 3% of those wills contain a charitable gift.|
|You can donate a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your assets, including stocks, bonds, CDs, real estate, vehicles, art, jewelry or other property.|
|Name your favorite charity as the beneficiary of your IRA or pension plan.|
|Name your favorite charity as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy, or purchase a new policy and name the charity as the beneficiary.|
|Honor deserving friends and remember loved ones with memorial gifts.|
If you have already made a planned gift to our Community Foundation and not informed us, please let us know so we can add you to our list of public and anonymous members.
*The Community Foundation suggests discussing your charitable plans with a professional tax advisor, attorney or other professional advisor to ensure the best choice for your financial situation.
