Mansukh Shah

After my wife passed away, I wanted to make charitable donations in her memory in a way that made the biggest impact in our community. It would have been cost-prohibitive to establish a private foundation, so I chose the Community Foundation to administer the Indira & Mansukh J. Shah Fund. This structure makes my giving easy. I can write one check to the Community Foundation at the end of the year, and then they distribute money to the organizations of my choice throughout the year.

I advise my friends, clients and community members to create a legacy through a fund at the Community Foundation to ensure their charitable work will continue when they are gone. This community is our home; whatever we can do to ensure a bright future for Central New York, we should do it!

I am still working, in part so that I can utilize my steady income to give charitably. The Community Foundation makes my giving easy and effective.
