When comparing the option of a private foundation versus other charitable strategies, remember that Community First Foundation has funds available that might fit your clients’ needs and avoid unnecessary expense and administrative requirements.
The flexibility of funds at the Foundation can enable your clients to be involved in grantmaking while maintaining their intent, name and pattern of charitable giving.
With Community First Foundation, your clients also have the freedom to give gifts of cash, stock, closely-held securities, real estate, or personal property and receive maximum tax benefits—all while helping the community now and forever.
In Addition, your clients have the ability to create planned gifts through retirement accounts, life insurance policies, charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities, while gaining tax and financial benefits.
