Donors like to use South Central Community Foundation because it is flexible and convenient. They can make one gift to the foundation and we distribute it according to their recommendations. Donors can give creatively over time through the different endowment vehicles. Also, South Central Community Foundation is experienced in handling the more complex, charitable gifts of appreciated property, i.e. stocks, bonds, real estate, etc. We can also assist donors in selecting the charitable tools that enhance a solid estate plan like Charitable Gift Annuities or Charitable Remainder Trusts. The community also benefits from the community foundation retaining assets in the local area for the benefit of nonprofit organizations.
