Ways to Give

Grant County is the THIRD most generous county in the State of Indiana. Isn’t that amazing!? 

Who knows? It could be your tax-deductible donation, made out to the Community Foundation, that moves us into first place. Yeah, we’re competitive. We can’t help it…we just love where we live! There’s no ribbon or trophy, but giving does make you feel pretty good, doesn’t it? And, you do have our heartfelt gratitude. If you’re not sure which fund to choose, we recommend the Give To Grant Unrestricted Fund. You’re gift, combined with other generous donations, significantly increases local grantmaking!

Giving to the Community Foundation is easy and doesn’t require great wealth. No matter how much you give, your philanthropic strategy will be meaningful when aligned with your values, life experiences, interests, or simply the desire to make Grant County a community where every person can reach full potential. With endowed funds supporting a variety of Grant County causes, every gift plays a part in connecting people, resources, and causes to promote sustainable impact towards the betterment of Grant County.

Giving online or by check is easy! 

Giving online or with a check are the easiest ways to give and may qualify for maximum allowable income tax deductions. If mailing a check, please use this Printable Giving Form to let us know how you would like to apply your gift, including memorial or honorary tribute details. Or visit our Donor Marketplace to view a full list of charitable funds online.

Guess what? We accept these ways to give, too! 

Gifts of stocks or other securities, gifts from donor-advised funds, gifts from Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), and even Cryptocurrency! Donating appreciated assets avoids federal capital gains taxes, and it provides a federal income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift. You can see savings of up to 70% of your gift. It’s easy!

Create a legacy of love. Join the Pie Society!

Many of the gifts we receive come in the form of end-of-life bequests, small and large. These gifts, from caring donors like you, wish to create a legacy in their community through planned giving. In creating an end-of-life gift, you chose to support your community and the causes you care deeply about long after your lifetime.

When you include the Community Foundation in your estate plans, you ensure that your charitable goals are met for the betterment of Grant County. We can help you get started. And if you have already included the Community Foundation in your will or trust, please contact us to let us know. We would love to thank you and Welcome you to the Grant County Pie Society!
