We add our expertise to yours to ensure that your client makes educated decisions while selecting from a full spectrum of options:

Types of Funds
Fund Fees
Planned Giving Options

With one fee at the Community Foundation, you or your clients get all the services you need:

  • Accounting
  • Investments
  • Grantmaking and Check Distribution
  • Compliance and Due Diligence
  • Access to our Research on Giving and Issue Areas
  • Full Turnkey Bequest Program
  • Full Turnkey Planned Giving Program
  • Event Invites with Other Philanthropists and Fundholders
  • IRS Reporting

Our public charity status provides maximum tax advantages under state and federal law, and we accept a wide variety of assets and can facilitate even the most complex forms of giving.

There are many advantages to partnering with us and in most cases our annual fee is more affordable than the costs of a private foundation. One fee covers all of our services.
