Opening and maintaining a charitable fund is simple. Start with a gift of $10,000 or more in cash, stock, or even complex assets, and experience the community impact, ease, and tax advantage that a fund provides.

Donors often increase their charitable giving because the fund grows, tax-free, through sound investment.

The Community Foundation provides the support, assistance, and encouragement that enables you to fuel lasting change and maximize the potential of our community. Whichever way you choose to give, you can take pride in knowing you are building a stronger Mid-South and improving the lives of others.
