The Three Rivers Community Foundation provides a variety of options to help your clients meet their charitable and financial planning goals. The Foundation can be a resource for you and a philanthropic partner for your clients. It is an organization through which individuals, families, companies, and charitable organizations can make gifts, current or deferred, to benefit the community. The Foundation is both permanent and flexible, thus assuring donors that the spirit of their gifts will endure.

The Three Rivers Community Foundation administers several types of funds that allow your clients to focus on charitable giving and achieve maximum tax deductions with none of the administrative burden of setting up a private foundation. Each fund type allows for different levels of donor involvement and flexibility in the types of organizations that it will support. Your client can choose the name of their fund regardless of the type of fund they choose. Contributions to all fund types can be made through outright donations, planned gifts or through a bequest in a will.

However your client may plan to give back to the community, the Three Rivers Community Foundation provides simplicity and flexibility in charitable giving – without the IRS paperwork, time, and expense of running their own private foundation. We can help you work with them to maximize both their tax advantages and the effectiveness of their giving.

Whatever your clients' needs, the Three Rivers Community Foundation offers a variety of financial giving instruments from outright gifts to planned giving vehicles.
