Planned Giving Partnership

We offer nonprofit organizations that have a reserve or endowment with us a turn-key planned giving program, and our staff will work with you and your donors to arrange any of these gift vehicles.* The program requires no upfront investment, additional staff training, or organizational liability. We handle all of the administrative and tax reporting details for you.

See a full list of our current planned giving partners.

We help your donors establish:

  • Charitable Gift Annuities
    These gifts pay an annuity to the donor during their lifetime and will eventually support the activities of your organization. Read more about offering your donors a CGA through the Community Foundation.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
    We consult with your donor to set up the most appropriate trust type and issue quarterly checks to donors. At the end of the trust term, the remaining assets roll into a VCF Designated Fund that supports your organization.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
    This trust makes annual distributions to a Donor Designated fund at the Foundation for the benefit of your organization and provides a way for your donor to transfer assets to their heirs at a reduced tax rate.

* Gift annuities can be funded with cash or marketable securities. Charitable trusts can be funded with any type of property that has value, including cash, marketable securities, real estate, personal property, closely-held stock, etc.

We can meet with your development staff or board, run gift scenarios on our software, or sit down with a donor.
