I know that my clients with charitable interests are in good hands when working with the Community Foundation. The staff is attentive to detail, caring, and most importantly, they listen. They take the time to sit down with my clients and find the best way to help them achieve their charitable giving goals.

Many clients choose to set up a donor-advised fund. This allows them to flexibly and easily support the charities and causes that they care about during their lifetimes. The Community Foundation also provides a number of ways for my clients to continue making a difference even after they’re gone.

The Community Foundation’s legacy giving services allow individuals and families to ensure their money is staying local and making an impact on their community in perpetuity. Donors can leave a planned gift through their estates, or by using assets like life insurance or retirement plans.

The Community Foundation acts as a steward for its donors’ funds. They research charitable organizations to ensure that money is being distributed wisely, and that grants are addressing the greatest needs in the community. If a donor’s favorite organization fails to exist in the future, the Community Foundation will seamlessly shift support to a similar organization to continue carrying out the donor’s intentions.

Having lived in the community for so many years, I am happy knowing there is an organization like the Community Foundation out there to support the organizations and causes my clients and I care about for generations to come.
