Ways to Give
We’re all about options and opportunities.
We can help you make the most of your charitable giving - whether you're updating your will, selling a company, memorializing a loved one or simply want to streamline your giving and tax receipts.
Donor Advised Funds
You recommend the organizations to receive grants, we do the due diligence and paperwork.Learn More
Use your donor advised fund to recommend charitable contributions to the causes and charities of your choice. These types of funds are ideal if you would like to take a charitable deduction in one given year and spread the contributions out over the following years.
Field of Interest Funds
Support a cause that matters to you, in perpetuity.
Provide readily-available resources for causes that are of greatest priority to you, leveraging your investments with other donors to maximize impact. If you’re considering IRA rollover contributions, this may be the avenue for you. Set up your own field of interest fund, or contribute to one of ours.
You pick the nonprofit, we make the grants both now and over time.
Support your preferred causes both now and for the long-term. Designated funds are permanently endowed assets that can create a reliable source of funding for specific charities you care about. A great avenue for IRA rollover contributions.
Should circumstances change that make support of a particular nonprofit impossible, unnecessary or undesirable over the long-term, our board can put the money to use for other important organizations with similar missions.
