Planned giving provides you the opportunity to make a lasting impact in the community and charities you hold dear. As part of your overall estate plan, planned gifts help you arrange a major charitable contribution in the present to be realized after your lifetime.
Many people choose to leave charitable assets or gifts to Community First Foundation through their estates, and we offer significant expertise in planned gifts of all types.
We encourage you to work with your legal or financial advisor as you consider the options. If you or your advisor have questions about estate gifts, please contact us at philanthropy@CommunityFirstFoundation.org or call Philanthropic Services at 720.898.5900.
The easiest and most common way to support Community First Foundation after your lifetime is by designating a portion of your estate to us in your will. You can also designate us as a beneficiary of your individual retirement plan.
Other options include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts and retained life estate.
According to Giving USA, approximately 80 percent of all philanthropy in America comes from individuals, year after year. Even an easy-to-arrange bequest can make a difference.Sample Bequest Language
