The Story County Community Foundation Partners with Professional Advisers to Help You Serve Your Clients Better
SCCF works closely with financial planners, attorneys, bankers and life insurance representatives to help their clients develop a giving approach that matches their personal interests and tax planning needs. We help integrate charitable giving within estate and financial plans, facilitate anonymous giving and assist with complex gift instruments.
While some donors understand fully the causes they want to support, others look to us for guidance in determining where community needs are greatest. We are always available to answer questions and to help donors make informed giving decisions.
Benefits to the community are as varied as the individuals making charitable contributions. A common thread in each and every fund, however, is the desire to give something back to our communities and to improve our quality of life.
A trusted resource for Estate and Financial Planners
Estate planners, financial planners, and other professional advisers are often faced with a delicate dilemma: You want to discuss the many benefits of charitable giving with your clients, but you want to avoid recommending specific charitable causes or organizations. That's where we fit in.

they care about most. At the same time, they will gain the maximum tax benefit under state and federal law.
