What to Give: Now & Later

Whether you make a gift now or a planned gift later, the PACF offers flexibility in fulfilling your charitable goals while addressing your unique financial circumstances.

Give Now

The Foundation works with you to address both your financial and charitable intentions. We accept the following gifts to establish a fund or support an existing fund.

Cash

Gifts can be in the form of cash of check.

Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds

Long-term appreciated holdings often have better tax advantages than gifts of cash. When you make a gift of publicly trades stock, you can receive full market value for the gift.

Real Estate

We can accept real estate gifts outright or work with you to establish a Charitable Remainder Trust.

Convert a Private Foundation

All the PACF to manage all the administrative details while you and your family focus more on the grantmaking. Transferring your private foundation to the PACF allows you to remain private about your giving and receive community foundation benefits.

Gift from IRA

If you are 70.5 or older, the Charitable IRA Act allows you to make a gift of up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to the PACF for certain charitable purposes.

Oil, Gas & Mineral Rights

While varying degrees of ownership make these gifts more complex, there are a wide variety of ways to make gifts of mineral interests for charitable purposes.

Give Later

Including the Foundation in your estate plans is an easy way to address your charitable intentions, make a positive impact on the community and create a lasting legacy.

Charitable Bequest

Give a gift through your will or trust to the PACF and continue your charitable support for your community. Such gifts may enable you to make significant contributions beyond those possible during your lifetime. Give to an established fund or start a new one to make a large community impact.

Life Insurance

Like insurance offers a simple way for you to give a significant gift with tax benefits that you enjoy during your lifetime. When life insurance is no longer needed, consider a gift by either giving a paid-up policy or by continuing to pay premiums.

Charitable Remainder Trust

You transfer assets into a trust, and the trust pays regular income payments to you or a beneficiary whom you designate. Upton the beneficiary's death or after a defined period of years, the remaining assets in the trust transfer to your community foundation for the charitable causes you stipulate.

IRA or Retirement Plan Assets

Name the PACF as the beneficiary of all or a portion of your IRA, 401(k) or qualified plan by completing a beneficiary designation form through your plan administrator. Turn your retirement accounts into tax-saving charitable gifts. 

Oil, Gas & Mineral Rights
