Professional Advisors: Why Work with the PACF

Since 1963, the PACF has served the citizens of our area as a leader in community philanthropy and charitable giving. We are committed to improving our region's collective future by inspiring philanthropy, engaging citizens and delivering results that matter.

Financial Benefits

Since the PACF is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charity, your client's gifts receive the greatest IRS tax deductions allowed by law. The Foundation invests their gifts/funds thoughtfully with both current community grantmaking and future growth in mind.   Its work is guided by the expertise of its Investment Committee, Investments Managers, and nationally-recognized independent investment advisory firm, Fund Evaluation Group (FEG). 

Giving Made Easy

Whether your client wishes to establish a new fund or donate to an existing fund, it's easy to make a gift to your community through the PACF. The Foundation takes care of all the administrative tasks while your client gets to focus on what's most important, their charitable goals.

Personalized Service

Whether your client wants to make a gift now or a planned gift later, the PACF offers flexibility in fulfilling their charitable goals while addressing their unique financial circumstances. By selecting among the various types of funds, they can tailor their support to be as specific or as broad as they wish to serve the causes most important to them.

An Excellent Giving Option

Compared to creating a Private Foundation or establishing a commercial gift fund, working with the PACF is an excellent giving option for your client. The Foundation's Board and Staff are local people committed to the betterment of our region and who have an understanding of our region's nonprofits, charitable projects and key community needs.
