Plan Your Legacy
Through planned gifts with the Delaware Community Foundation, people have shared their good fortune. They have assisted those who need a helping hand, promoted the arts, protected the environment, worked to build community, improved education and in many other ways made sure their legacy of caring will continue for future generations.
There are many easy giving options from which you can choose — from a simple bequest or a charitable gift annuity to a more complex trust arrangement — we can help you find the planned gift that works best for you.
Some planned gifts offer lifetime income for you and a loved one — and most provide tax benefits. With a planned gift, you can create a new fund or augment an existing fund designed to support the causes you care about most.
We've created this easy-to-understand website to help you find the gift that's right for you. Here you can learn how to plan a gift to a fund at the Delaware Community Foundation. We'll tell you about creative giving strategies that enhance your, and your family's, well being and help your community as well.
This website is interactive and fun to use:
If you're already considering certain giving options, simply click on Compare Gift Options and select the gifts you want to learn more about.
If you're not sure how our gift plans can meet your financial goals, enter the Legacy Planner™, and follow the trail to the gifts that will work best for you. Each option you select leads to more choices, letting you design your own gift plan.
Welcome! We hope you enjoy the site.
