Planned Giving

Planned gifts are extremely powerful and impactful tools. Providing for the causes and organizations that matter most to you in your will, trust, and through other charitable giving vehicles can be incredibly rewarding. Doing so will often create substantial benefits that can reduce or eliminate income or estate taxes, maximize inheritances for your beneficiaries, and allow you to do something truly significant and transformative for the causes you love.

The Community Foundation of Grundy County is uniquely positioned to help you in this process. Our broad knowledge of the different ways to give and our extensive knowledge of the local charitable landscape make us the ideal partner to help you focus your objectives, learn more about various causes and organizations, discover how best to support them, and uncover new passions that match the interests of you and your family.

We will work with you and your advisors to determine the type of planned gift that is right for you and your heirs and then craft a charitable plan to accomplish your unique goals.

You can design your planned gift to land here in a donor-designed fund or as a gift to our unrestricted fund to support our work and grantmaking as we continue to convene stakeholders to strategize how to best tackle the issues facing our communities.

Welcome and we look forward to working with donors and advisors alike!

Remember: you don't give TO a community foundation, you give THROUGH a community foundation.
