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 are here serving this community for the future, you are assured a permanent source of funds available for issues you care about.

Ease
A fund can be established with a simple governing document that requires less than an hour to prepare. Our experienced staff will guide you carefully through the process and enable you to establish a charitable fund without having to cope with the complexities of setting up a special-purpose nonprofit corporation.

Flexibility
We take pride in our ability to customize services to meet your charitable objectives. You may establish a fund that supports charitable organizations or programs you care about, 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. We accept charitable donations in many forms, for your convenience.

Cost-Effectiveness
We are dedicated to ensuring that your charitable giving is as effective as possible, for you and for those who benefit from your philanthropy. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, we provide you with maximum tax benefits from your gifts. Foundation Staff and Board of Directors provide professional management and oversight of your funds, maintaining minimal management costs, while providing Scholarship and Grant expertise on your behalf.
