There are many factors at play in charitable giving: from the amount of money to how it grows, where it goes, and how it gets there. We make sure each piece of the process meets your needs and those of the causes you care about. Whether you already know which organizations you want to support, or whether you need our guidance, you will receive attentive and informed service.
Working with JCF is an effective way to achieve multiple charitable goals, focus your giving strategy, support present and future community needs, and build legacy—with low-cost administration. We provide donors with a simple process, prudent stewardship, and flexible giving options for a rewarding philanthropic experience.
JCF Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have chosen to leave a lasting charitable legacy in Jefferson County by donating to the Jefferson Community Foundation itself or by donating their “fund” at the Community Foundation through a will, trust, designation or other planned gift. JCF Legacy Society honors its individual members’ charitable passions while establishing members as philanthropic role models in our community. Legacy Society participants are an inspiration to others to look toward the future and learn how they too can have an enduring impact on the causes they care about.
If you’ve already included the Community Foundation or your “fund” at the Foundation through a planned gift, we invite you to let us know so that we may honor you as a member of the JCF Legacy Society. You can always remain anonymous in this decision as well. Legacy Society members share a dedication to Jefferson County – but every act of giving is personal and unique. Contact us to discuss your preferences. JCF will also work directly with your lawyer or estate planner to help make your intentions and plans clear.
In general, JCF’s gift policy is to liquidate any stock, real estate, property, etc. and deposit the cash into your fund to be used as you direct.
We recommend you consult with your financial or legal advisor to identify the optimum asset for your personal situation. Please contact JCF prior to initiating your gift so we can be prepared when you are ready to open or add to your fund.
