Create Your Own Charitable Giving Plan
The Lincoln Community Foundation provides tools to help you develop your personal philanthropic plan. We work with you to prepare your own fund agreement that documents your intent and instructions for every charitable gift made to or through the Foundation. See our Overview of Funds for more information.
Charitable gifts to the Foundation can be funded in two ways. You can give now, or later through a planned gift. We accept gifts of cash, stock, and many types of property. Planned gifts may include a will, trust, life insurance policy, or through establishing a life-income arrangement such as a gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. The Foundation will work with you and your financial advisor to look at the options and determine the best gifting plan for you. No matter which method of giving you choose, your gift is fully tax-deductible as allowable by law.
