Community Foundation Grey Bruce

We create opportunities for dialogue and inclusion
Nurturing a vital community means reaching out and ensuring that people with different experiences and points of view are included, especially those who are often excluded. We bring people together to create opportunities for respectful dialogue and joint problem solving. We enthusiastically participate when invited to dialogues convened by others.

10 Reasons to Give

Ten reasons people choose to give through community foundations:

  3. We provide highly personalized service tailored to each individual's charitable and financial interests.
  4. Our funds help people invest in causes they care about most.
  5. We accept a wide variety of assets, and can facilitate even the most complex forms of giving.
  6. We partner with professional advisors to create highly effective approaches to charitable giving.
  7. We offer maximum tax advantage under federal law for most gifts.
  8. We multiply the impact of gift dollars by pooling them with other gifts and grants
  9. We build endowment funds that benefit the community forever and help create personal legacies.
  10. We build community vitality, fostering collaboration on issues of broad interest to create positive change.

When you make a gift of appreciated stock to your community foundation, everyone wins. Here's how:

Your gains are put to good use. Your stock is reinvested in your community. You can make a general donation to support a range of activities, or set up a charitable fund in your name. You can even stay involved by suggesting local agencies and programs you'd like to help with your gift dollars.

You receive big tax benefits. You can gain from a tax deduction on the full market value of your stock. Plus you can avoid capital gains tax that would otherwise arise from the sale of this stock.
