Donors

Becoming a member of our donor family offers an easy way for you to accomplish your charitable dreams. As our partner in giving, you receive the simplicity and tax advantages of a public charity combined with the personal recognition, involvement and flexibility of a private foundation. You also gain access to the highest level of strategic thinking on ways to meet community challenges to help make your contributions as effective as possible. And because we plan to serve this community for a long time, you can be assured that there will be a permanent source of funds available for issues you care about.

Easy

A fund can be established with a simple governing document that requires less than an hour to prepare. And we'll guide you carefully through the process. Giving should warm your heart, not burden you with tax complications and ongoing administrative details. You can establish a charitable fund without having to cope with the complexities of setting up a special-purpose nonprofit corporation. 

Flexible

We take pride in our ability to customize services to meet your charitable objectives. You may establish a fund that supports your favorite charitable organizations or programs, the community's greatest areas of need, or a broad field of interest. You may also contribute to an existing fund or make an unrestricted gift that our Board of Directors will put to good use in the community on your behalf.

Effective

We are dedicated to ensuring that your charitable giving is as effective as possible. Your fund will share the costs of a knowledgeable staff, enjoy excellent financial management and benefit from a closely monitored investment strategy. Satisfaction comes from knowing that your contributions have been effective and have created positive change. We know you consider your charitable gifts to be an investment in your community, your church, your alma mater or whatever causes you select. Tap into the expertise of our staff members who are available to assess the effectiveness of a grant, research a giving option or discuss opportunities with you.

Permanent

An important part of our work is building a permanent collection of funds for our community.  Our Board of Directors ensures that these funds will grow in perpetuity and will continue to carry out the charitable objectives of the donors who established them. If these objectives ever become impossible to carry out, the Board will redirect the funds to support a closely related purpose.

We're here to help you with all aspects of your giving experience.  If you have questions about becoming a donor, please call us at 864-233-5925 or e-mail Bob Morris or Gina Blohm
