About the Foundation

What Do We Do?

Community foundations are grant making charities dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographic area.  They bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support nonprofits in their communities.  

At Three Rivers Community Foundation, our primary purposes are:

To stimulate the creation of  endowed funds to support nonprofits in our community now, and in the future;

To address community needs and opportunites through grant making and organizational leadership.

The season for giving is quickly approaching, and now is a great time for an IRA Charitable Rollover.

What is an IRA Charitable Rollover?

Donors who are age 70 1/2 or older can make a gift of up to $100,000 from their IRA (traditional or ROTH) to support 3RCF;
This strategy works for both itemizers and non-itemizers.

Why is this a good gift option for donors?

The gift counts against the required minimum distribiton for the year;
The gift is excluded from taxable income - which is a nice tax benefit;
It may prevent a donor from being pushed into a higher tax bracket;
It is easy do to - a donor simply notifies their IRA custodian;
It minimizes the effect on cash flow; the gift is from assets, not the checkbook.
