Your Charitable Estate Plans
With thoughtful planning, you may actually maximize your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to your community. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring How to Give and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal goals.
Popular Gift Options
With all the options available, which is the best one for you? The various gift plans offer tremendous benefits for you, the donor, so you can base your strategy on your individual circumstances.
Gifts That Pay Income
A popular gift option is the charitable gift annuity. You simply make a gift to The Community Foundation and in exchange receive a fixed annual dollar amount—for life.
The Community Foundation has established the Nettie J. Dayton Circle to recognize supporters who have made estate plans, life-income arrangements, or other planned gifts.
