Benefits Of A Community Foundation

Your community foundation is your “one-stop shop” for all of your charitable giving needs. It’s an easy and effective way to support the groups and issues you care about through a gift to a single organization.
Tax Benefits
Gifts to your community foundation receive the maximum tax advantages for income, gift and estate tax purposes.
Your community foundation can receive many kinds of gifts, including unique assets such as gifts of grain, livestock and collectibles. The Grant County Community Foundation can help you and your financial advisor develop a gift plan to meet your personal financial needs and all of your charitable intentions, now and in the future.
Effective Leadership
The Grant County Community Foundation adheres to the highest standards of professional excellence.
Your community foundation distributes charitable dollars and is not the end user. Unrestricted funds are used to support the community’s most important needs and opportunities, while other funds established by donors are designated to benefit our donors’ favorite causes. Our sole objective is to facilitate philanthropy and further develop a habit of giving back to community.
There is always a chance that a nonprofit organization’s mission or leadership may, over time, change significantly. The Grant County Community Foundation can help our donors respond to these changes. Where donors have established permanent endowments with us, we can help to assure that if such changes do occur, the funds are reallocated according to the donor’s original intent.
Recognition or Anonymity
You may choose to receive public recognition or remain completely anonymous.
An annual independent audit ensures fiscal responsibility.
Following years of organization and growth as a Field of Interest fund, The Grant County Community Foundation was established in 2010 and has experience continued substantial growth. Your outright or deferred gift will last forever when it is given to one of GCCF’s permanent endowments. With an endowment, assets are invested to generate an ongoing source of income year after year and your legacy will last forever.
To find out more about the many ways that you can fulfill your charitable goals, contact GCCF.
