Giving Now, Giving Later
Give now: By establishing a fund today, you can support your favorite charities during over your lifetime and beyond. With many options from which to choose, donors have as much control as they wish as well as the maximum charitable tax deduction.
Give later: Giving as part of an estate plan allows you to divide property between loved ones and charitable interests as desired. Rather than writing specific bequests to several different charities, you may prefer to create a single fund within the Community Foundation, or add to one that already exists. We then carry out your charitable interests acting as stewards of the funds and ensuring that all recipients are current and viable.
Cultivating planned charitable giving is a central goal of the Community Foundation. By doing so, we strengthen community grant making, support sustainability of the local agencies, and keep vital community capital in right here in Central Missouri.
