Create a Fund
Most donors wishing to create a legacy and provide ongoing support for the causes they care about will establish a fund that will provide a source of financial support to benefit charitable organizations. The funds are not only ways to continue a philanthropic commitment to LGBT issues, but a way to leverage and support the leadership of the Cream City Foundation.
Donor Advised Funds are a simple, flexible and cost-effective charitable giving vehicle. These funds can be established as a permanent endowment or on a "nonendowed" basis - meaning that grants from the fund could exhaust the fund.
A donor advised fund is a fund into which you can make tax-deductible contributions and retain the ability to recommend grants from the fund to support any 501(c)(3) public charity in the United States - provided the grant is at least $100 and that no one receives a personal benefit because of the grant (such as tickets to a fund-raising event). The advisor also has the right to recommend investment strategies to provide tax-free growth of the fund's assets to enhance the amount available to be distributed from the fund.
Those that have created a donor advised fund with us have full access to our professional staff for assistance in researching nonprofit causes they may wish to support and developing gifting plans to most efficiently make gifts into their donor advised fund.
