Ways of Giving
Establishing a Fund with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks is a simple process. Our staff is committed to helping Donors meet their charitable interests through the exploration of charitable giving vehicles, determining the appropriate fund type, assisting with planned giving techniques and membership in our legacy society. We are pleased to offer our current donors as well as our prospective donors a wide range of online information and services to assist them in pursuing their charitable goals.
Almost any kind of asset can be used to start a fund or contribute to an existing fund including cash, securities, real estate, and many other options. To learn more about the various giving methods, please visit the Ways of Giving page.
As you consider charitable giving, the planned giving for donors portion of our web site features an extensive collection of resources covering the latest information on thoughtful planned giving strategies, updates on legislative action that may impact financial and charitable matters, financial news, and tools to help you map out your planned giving strategies.
The Legacy Society was created to recognize and thank donors in their lifetimes who have made planned giving commitments to the Community Foundation of the Ozarks and its affiliates. The Legacy Society page has complete listing of members and funds established through planned gifts.
