Tax Advantaged and
Contributions to the Eastland Community Foundation
qualify for maximum income, gift and estate tax
deductions. ECF can receive many types of assets,
and will work with your trusted personal advisors to
incorporate your charitable wishes into an estate or
financial plan. ECF professionalism assures maximum
impact on community needs...now and in the future.
Convenient and Efficient
Each fund is maintained separately, but pooling
funds for investment and administration increases
efficiency. ECF writes and mails checks, monitors
results and handles reporting, legal and audit
requirements. When compared to establishing and
administering a private foundation, ECF offers
increased flexibility and deductibility for gifts.
Simple and Flexible
A new fund can be established with a simple
agreement. Almost any type of charitable giving can
be accomplished through a fund at the Eastland
Community Foundation, whether you want to support a
specific organization or a broad range of interests.
Grants can be made to any nonprofit organization in
the name of your fund or anonymously.
The Eastland Community Foundation knows the needs
and assets of Eastland. Foundation staff and board
members work closely with nonprofits to improve
community life and address challenges. They are
available to share this knowledge and help customize
a giving plan that is rewarding for donors and
meaningful for the community.
Accountable and Permanent
ECF is managed by an active
volunteer Board of Directors who are charged with
the stewardship of each donor's charitable intent
and the public interest. Endowment funds are managed
so that gifts made today will provide benefits to
residents for generations to come.
