Whether you decide to give today, tomorrow, or in the future, we will make it easy for you to support the communities you love.
The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation accepts an array of assets for establishing a new fund or contributing to a current one. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
Gifts of cash are an easy way for a donor to make an immediate impact.
Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) provide substantial tax advantages since their full fair market value can be deductible as a charitable contribution, and capital gains tax can be avoided.
Giving closely-held business interests can be an effective way to achieve philanthropic goals in a tax-efficient manner.
The Community Foundation can accept real estate as a gift, including homes, cabins, vacation properties, farms, commercial buildings, mineral interests, and other income-producing or non-income-producing land.
Naming the Community Foundation in your will or living trust is another way to support the community after you are gone. Bequests can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a residual amount.
If you no longer need your life insurance policy, making a gift of the unneeded policy can be a convenient and effective way of meeting your charitable goals. When ownership of a policy transfers to the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, a charitable tax deduction based on its current value becomes available. The Community Foundation may also be named as a beneficiary.
