What are the financial benefits and tax advantages of gifting through the Adams County Community Foundation?

The Foundation's approach to planned giving offers a number of important benefits to donors. Because we manage a large number of discretionary funds, administrative costs and custodial fees for any one fund are minimized - meaning less overhead cost to the donor's fund. Another important advantage is that the federal tax code provides significant incentives for contributions to the Foundation. The Foundation also has a number of different types of funds to accommodate donors who prefer the long-term strategy of endowments or those who want to give more actively each year. Donors may choose to establish one of these funds or choose to contribute to an existing fund that is flexible in response to emerging needs in our local community.
