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.

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.

Scholarships for Bedrock and Beyond

There are several ways to plan for your retirement. A CRT may be a good option if you would like to earn income in retirement AND support education or other causes beyond your lifetime. It's so easy even a caveman can do it!

Give Smart - Financial Advisor Program

THCF is a valuable resource for professional advisors and their clients. With the THCF Financial Advisor Program, we make it easy for professional advisors to meet their client’s charitable goals in a tax-wise way.

Give Smart - DAF 101

Learn how easy it is to establish a Donor Advised fund to support your charitable giving. It's a flexible, cost-effective, and tax-wise choice.

Leaving a Legacy - A Gift of Security

A charitable gift annuity is a way you can make a gift to support your favorite charitable cause and receive cash back every year for as long as you live.

Is it time for a refill?

Some of our donors needed to refill their DAFs during the course of the year to keep up with the pace of giving, and the end of the year can be a tax-wise time to do it.

Year-End Gift or Year-End Legacy?

what will happen to your favorite organizations in the future—five, ten, or even fifty years from now? There are ways to sustain your support beyond your lifetime. Maybe, at this year-end, it’s time to think beyond the annual gift—perhaps it’s time to think about your legacy.

Year-End is Coming

November has crept through the door, and we didn’t even notice. With the holiday season just weeks away, your Community Foundation is gearing up for a busy fourth quarter. We typically see the highest number of fund contributions during the last two months of the year.

Life Insurance as a Charitable Asset

Using life insurance as part of your estate planning is common. Life insurance is one of the most efficient assets for individuals to leave their families when they pass. Other assets, such as IRAs, have significant tax consequences for heirs and are often left to charities since they don’t take a tax hit. However, many people don’t consider using their life insurance as a charitable asset. Have you?
