Some donors are interested in setting up funds or donating to CFMC's existing funds right away, while others are interested in including us in their est ate planning. There are various options of giving, including Outright (or lifetime) Gifts and Planned Gifts. Especially in the case of Charitable Remainder Gifts, we recommend the use of professional counsel in structuring, drafting, and reviewing all the tax implications for such charitable giving plans.
Many people choose to leave part of their estate to the CFMC through a bequest, insurance policy or other vehicle. We appreciate being informed of such planned gifts, and we honor those who've chosen to partner with us in this way by including them in our Legacy Society.
If you are considering the creation of a private foundation, we encourage you to explore the advantages a community foundation can offer. Please view this resource on Comparing Charitable Giving Options.
Information about our investment and payout policies and our fee structure can be found in the Donor Resources section.
