Options for Clients

Give Now. Give Later.

When your client works with the Community Foundation, they support the charitable causes they care about when and how they want. Whether they create a charitable fund during their lifetime or choose to give through their will, trust or another deferred gift, we will help them design a strategy that is tailored to their charitable interests as well as their financial, estate, and tax needs.
