The word – customize brings to mind specific, tailored, personal and expensive! In most instances that is indeed true. We at the Community Foundation are specialists in Customized Philanthropy. Customized Philanthropy is specific, tailored, personal and affordable. The Community Foundation offers resources to help donors create a customized plan that will cater to their priorities and preferences.
The giving plans we set up are as different and varied as the donors we work with. We provide a way for anyone to create a legacy within our community. In simplistic terms, the Community Foundation accepts donations and invests the money in an endowed or forever fund. The interest from this investment is distributed through a granting process to eligible charities. That is where simplicity ends and customization begins. Some of the options we offer include: accepting cash, publically traded shares or life insurance policies. The donor also has as much or as little input regarding which charities benefit from their philanthropy. With no obligation or service fees, customization is finally affordable! By creating an endowment with the Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta, donors know their gifts will be carefully invested for the long term.
The Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta makes giving easy. With one stop, we offer countless ways to provide ongoing support to your preferred causes in Southeastern Alberta.
Each fund is customized to the donor’s vision and goals. We will help you build a fund that makes a difference – your way.
Families are planning philanthropic gifts together as an expression of shared values, as a way of teaching their children about social responsibility and taking pride in their family legacy. Philanthropy – Make it a proud family tradition to be passed on through the generations.
We understand tax rules for giving. We will simplify the process for you and help you maximize your tax savings.
