We embrace diversity foster renewal
We believe there is strength in diversity. As our community's foundation, we have a responsibility to reflect its diversity. We continually renew our boards and staff, reach out to understand different points of view, and engage the broader community in our deliberations and decision making.
10 Reasons to Give
Ten reasons people choose to give through community foundations:
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.
