We work with donors, and groups of donors, to best realize your charitable values and give with greater impact. The possibilities are as varied as your wishes.
Our staff members are immersed, every day, in the world of charitable giving, and we’re happy to share that knowledge with our donor advisors. We can help you research a specific issue or nonprofit. We can give you context for larger charitable efforts. We can even help you find other donors who share your goals and interests.
How can you take advantage of our Donor Services?
Our services are flexible, but here are some of the most common ways to call on the Community Foundation's help:
- We can research a specific nonprofit to provide you with details about its programs, budget, leadership, target population, goals and use of funds.
- We can research broad issues and causes to identify nonprofits that share your goals and sensibilities, how they’re working together, what they’ve accomplished so far, where continued need exists and even how other communities are addressing these issues.
- We can help you find the right way to give by developing a giving plan that helps you decide how much to give, and how to structure your giving over time.
- We can report on areas of need in the local area. After our grant cycles, we can provide you with information about grant requests we received and what specific areas of need are yet to be funded. We are always happy to tailor a report to fit your interest.
