Give to an Existing Fund
Consider giving a gift to one of the 140+ funds already established by individuals, businesses, and organizations that want to build stronger communities. If you would like to give to an existing fund but are not sure which to choose, please contact us.
Establish a Fund
Make a lasting impact with your giving. As your partner in philanthropy, The Community Foundation makes it easy to realize your giving goals through a charitable fund. A simple fund agreement and an initial tax-deductible gift are all you need to create your personal giving vehicle. Our team can talk with you about the benefits of the various types of funds and answer any questions you may have.
Give of Your Time and Talents.
The Community Foundation does much of its work through our volunteer board and committees. Participation on committees is just one way to become involved with the Community Foundation.
BCCF selects board and committee members based on their ability to assist in accomplishing our mission. To be eligible for Board Membership, applicants must be annual BCCF donors and reside or work in our service area. We consider the diversity of experience, skills, and networks in choosing candidates and the expressed desire to help raise funds and leverage resources to serve our communities.
Ways to Give
We strive to make giving easy, so you can focus on making an impact. To that end, we accept a wide variety of gifts, from online credit cards to complex assets. We are a 501(c)(3), so all gifts to The Branch County Community Foundation are eligible for the full charitable deduction. Whichever option you choose, your gift will help make Colon and Branch County places we all love to live.
