DONOR CONNECTION – FEBRUARY.2024

Greetings from the community foundation, and happy February! 

In this month of Valentine’s Day, many fund holders at the community foundation are taking a moment to reflect on the causes they care about and the organizations in our community they love. Many people use their donor-advised fund at the community foundation to make gifts to charity to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which is a bigger holiday for giving than many people realize. Americans spend $26 billion on Valentine’s Day gifts ($2 billion on pets!), including sending 145 million cards and 250 million roses. 

This month, we are reflecting on the ways you can show the love for the charities you care about the most. 

  • Estate planning might feel like a burden on your to do list, but it’s actually one of the best ways you can show you care.
  • At the community foundation, we know that every gift matters. The importance of every act of charity is a good reminder as you start implementing your charitable giving plans for 2024. 
  • Fund holders and legacy donors at the community foundation are often surprised to learn how the community foundation’s team is involved in estate administration when a donor leaves a bequest.

The community foundation offers so many tools and services to help you support the causes you care about. We’re honored to work with so many dedicated fund holders, and we are excited to work with so many of you who are considering establishing a fund at the community foundation to pursue your own philanthropic passions.

Thank you for your partnership in improving the quality of life for everyone in our community. 

 

Angie Tatro,

CKCF CEO
