You Can Give Now and Forever

The Community Foundation offers a variety of ways that you can achieve your charitable goals.

When you make a gift through The Community Foundation, we establish a special fund in your name, the name of your family, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. Grants are distributed year after year to your favorite cause(s) or nonprofit. Your fund benefits the community forever and becomes your personal legacy of giving.

The Nettie J. Dayton Circle honors individuals who have chosen to leave a legacy through The Community Foundation — in their wills, personal trusts, retirement plans, life income gifts, or other deferred gift arrangements. Join a group of visionaries, all of whom created individual legacies that reflect personal values and lifetime commitments to community-based causes.

If you are interested in:

  • giving a gift of cash, appreciated securities or tangible property;
  • making a gift that provides you with a source of income during your lifetime;
  • planning a future gift such as naming The Community Foundation as a beneficiary of your IRA or insurance policy;
  • transferring all or a portion of your required minimum distribution from your IRA,

We may have a charitable solution that's right for you.
