Avenues for Giving!

Avenues for Giving!

The foundation has developed a program of annual charitable giving at membership levels to provide operational support as well as a program of donor-advised gifts of over $10,000 (where the donor specifies the beneficiary). The concept behind a donor-advised fund is one in which an individual gifts the foundation a large sum for all of his/her charitable giving. The donor advises the direction and disbursement of the funds according to his/her giving priorities. Gifts of stock/securities and real estate are welcome, and our goal is to work with you to make the most of your charitable gifts. Imagine us as your local charity bank. You pay your bills from one account. Now you can make all of your charitable donations from one account, too! We would like to be at the top of your list. You may be anonymous or not; we only divulge information about you if that is your desire.
