Beyond the Checkbook

When you think about charitable giving, you probably think of giving cash, making an online donation, or writing a check and dropping it in the mail. Monetary donations are straightforward and the simplest way to give, but it doesn’t always provide the greatest benefits for donors or impact for charities. Complex assets can be a tax-efficient way to support your favorite charities in a big way.

Be Part of the Solution – Give 5

The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) has started a new social engagement program, Give 5, and they are looking for people from our area to sign up. Take 5 is targeted toward active retirees (those 60 years old and older) looking to make an impact on their communities. Participants commit to five day-long classes on a variety of engaging topics, from civic engagement to inclusion in community service.

Planning with a DAF

Convenience and flexibility are just a few reasons people like using a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) for their philanthropy. But you can also use a DAF to plan your legacy. You can also create a deferred fund for your future charitable giving.
