Giving Options

Outright Donations

  • Gifts of Cash: A cash gift is the easiest way to make a donation.  Consult with your tax advisor for possible tax advantages.
  • Securities: Gifts of appointed securities (bonds and stocks) also may be used to make a donation.  Such gifts also provide important tax advantages.
  • Life Insurance: Life Insurance policies also can be used to make a charitable donation.  Just name The Eden Community Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy.  Consult your tax advisor for possible tax advantages.
  • Memorial Gifts: Memorial gifts are gifts given as tributes or in memory of someone.  Gifts may be given to honor a living person, deceased person or to commemorate anniversaries or special events.

Remainder Gifts (Bequests)

  • Bequests: You can make a donation in your will or trust through a bequest. This will allow you to leave a family legacy, which allows children to continue their involvement in charitable giving.
  • Retirement Plan Beneficiaries: A retirement plan is one of the best types of assets to transfer to a charity because it could reduce taxable income.
  • Life Insurance Beneficiaries: If you would like to contribute the proceeds of a life insurance policy to help The Foundation, but you are not ready to give up ownership of the policy, you can name The Eden Community Foundation only as a beneficiary. You will retain ownership and have access to the cash value as well as the right to change the beneficiary.
  • More Information: For more information about Bequests, please Contact Us.
