Ways to Support

Community Projects FunD

What are you passionate about? Do you have a vision to start a charitable project, knowing there is a need, but not knowing where to begin? We can help them turn your vision into reality.

A Community Project Fund allows an individual or group  to operate as a 501(c)(3) organization under the umbrella of The Foundation. As your Fiscal Sponsor, The Foundation becomes the tax-exempt organization that allows you to receive charitable contributions from individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies that may not otherwise be available to you. Under the supervision of The Foundation, these contributions are used exclusively for charitable purposes. The Foundation also provides back office services to your organization (e.g. acknowledgement of tax-deductible donations, invoice payments, bookkeeping and IRS reporting requirements).

Community Project Funds are subject to approval. Please contact The Foundation for more information on how you can turn your vision into a reality.

Donor Advised Funds

Have you ever thought about having your own foundation to fulfill your philanthropic goals? A donor advised fund makes philanthropy simple. Donors can create an account with an initial gift and recommend grants to their favorite charities at their convenience.

These assets will be invested in a professionally managed portfolio, allowing the account to grow tax free. These accounts have many tax advantages, including avoiding capital gains by donating appreciated securities. A donor advised fund (DAF) gives you many of the benefits of a family foundation without the trouble of administering one.

Gifts of cash, stock, real estate or any other appreciated assets may be used to establish a DAF. Once established, gifts of any size may be made to the DAF at any time in order to maximize the tax benefits of the donor. For more information on establishing a Donor Advised Fund, please contact Landon Taylor at (731) 984-2140.
