BENEFITS TO DONORS
The Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation was created to help individuals, families and businesses support charitable community organizations/projects important to them.
Gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. See the Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program for more information.
In addition to cash contributions the Foundation can accept a wide range of gifts including: stocks, bonds, life insurance, real estate, bequests, and IRAs.
Donors may establish a fund in their name or the name of the loved one. The name the donor selects is always connected with any grant from the donor’s fund.
Creating a fund is not complicated.
The Board of Directors monitors grants to assure they are achieving their stated purpose.
Donors are relieved of the need to invest, keep records and make reports in order to carry out their charitable activities.
Donors derive pleasure from knowing that their favorite charities are benefiting from their gifts. By making gifts through the Foundation you can achieve business, family and estate planning objectives while assisting charitable agencies and causes that you favor.
