There are many ways to give.

Lifetime Giving

Watch your charitable dollars make a difference and make a personal commitment to your community. Start a fund or contribute to an existing one. Donations of cash, stock, property, real estate, business interests—gifts of any size—are welcome and appreciated at any time.

Gifts of Grain

Giving grain to SCCF to benefit a favorite cause removes the sale of the grain from your farm income.  A charitable income tax deduction is generally not available to you but you can deduct production costs which typically results in saving self-employment tax, federal income tax and state income tax.  You can benefit even if you don't itemize your deductions.

Can be made in honor or memory of a special person
or event in the donor’s life and can be added to an
existing fund or placed in the general endowment.

Retirement Fund

Gift the assets from your retirement fund by naming SCCF as a beneficiary and creating a Legacy Fund with us.

Life Insurance

Designate SCCF as the owner or beneficiary of a policy you no longer need.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity is a simple contract established between a donor and the Community Foundation by which a portion of a gift of cash or marketable securities transferred to the Community Foundation establishes an endowed fund to benefit a charity of the donor's choice. The remainder is returned to a designated recipient as scheduled income payments. 
Charitable gift annuities are easy to establish, require no trust administration, incur no setup costs to the donor and provide partial a charitable income tax deduction for the donor.  The donor escapes worries about managing the donated asset and keeping its value up with inflation.

Gifts can easily be made directly to an existing fund or by starting a named fund.
