We are committed to helping donors achieve their charitable interests and goals. For the best fit with a donor's wishes, there are a number of fund types available through the community foundation. We are happy to explore these options with you.
Through the community foundation, your gift may support the charitable cause most important to you, or be pooled with other contributions to impact the community through an annual competitive grant cycle for improvements to health, education, parks, recreation, the arts and social services in this area.
The Kansas Health Foundation, in conjunction with its GROW II grant to the Parsons Area Community Foundation, will match contributions to endowed funds at either fifty or twenty-five cents on the dollar, depending on which fund receives the donations. This challenge continues through 2017, or until PACF has raised $450,000 in matching funds. WE ARE MORE THAN HALFWAY TO OUR GOAL!
While the vast majority of all charitable donations nationwide are made in cash, there are other options for giving that may be far more advantageous tax-wise, and a better fit for your particular situation.
When you make a legacy gift to us, you are invited to join our Legacy Society, whose members share your affinity for lasting philanthropy. The Community Foundation can help you craft a legacy that allows you to speak to future generations, and support the things that matter most to you.
In looks, charitable gift cards are just like retail gift cards, but rather than being redeemed at a store, the recipient has the pleasure of giving the dollar value of the gift card to their favorite charitable organization. Gift cards are available in $25, $50, and $100 denominations.
A Giving Circle is a simple yet powerful concept: A group of individuals come together, each contribute to a fund at the community foundation, and annually use those combined resources to award grants to benefit the community.
Giving online is a simple process. Your information will be submitted to PACF and you will be taken to PayPal, our secure online payment processing partner, to complete your donation. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can pay using your debit or credit card.
