Plan now to give


A planned gift to the Community Foundation is an investment in making life better for all of us. You can support specific areas of interest, collective efforts, or specific organizations that have been meaningful in your life.

Whatever your goals, we will work with you and your advisor to ensure your gift to our community will leave a lasting mark and be felt for generations.

A gift that will 


Every dollar donated makes a difference. When thinking about planned gifts, it’s not all or nothing. A portion of your estate can have impressive consequences.

An endowed gift establishes a permanent charitable fund based on your values. The fund is invested, and each year a percentage is distributed through grants.

Over 20 years, an endowed gift of $100,000 will distribute $92,000 in grants and also grow to almost $150,000.*

*Based on projected income of 7% and an annual spend of 5%.

Lives on

Ron & Pauline Heim continue to make an impact through their planned gift to the Community Foundation.

“Ron and Pauline [Heim]’s gift to our community is very inspiring. It brings us so much joy when it arrives each December. And while the dollars are obviously important to our mission, our deepest joy comes from understanding the far-reaching and never-ending impact that Ron and Pauline’s legacy is having in so many areas of our community.”
