Ways of Giving:

  • A Current Gift: A gift of cash or securities establishes a fund right now.
  • A Bequest or Memorial: Add the Helene DiStefano Fund to your will or estate plan.
  • Remainder Trust: Various trusts for larger gifts reduce taxes and allow receipt of income for life.
  • Monthly Giving:  You can give as much or as little as you would like on a monthly basis.  Monthly giving helps sustain the fund during times that we do not have fundraisers.

Assets to Give:

  • Appreciated Securities: The donor pays no capital gains tax and receives a charitable deduction on the full fair market value of the stock.
  • Closely Held Stock: There are innovative ways to donate closely-held stock through the Foundation.
  • Life Insurance: A donor may purchase a new policy or donate an existing policy.
  • Real Property: The Community Foundation may accept such property upon special consideration.
  • Retirement Fund: IRA and other retirement funds can save estate taxes.
  • Cash
