Points to consider:
A community foundation offers numerous advantages for charitable giving that provides ways for your clients to stay engaged in their community and avoids many of the hassles of private foundation management.
- Clients who already have a private foundation may find there are several benefits in transferring it to The Alaska Community Foundation.
- The Alaska Community Foundation offers six different ways for your client to give charitably. Several of our fund types offer opportunities for your client to remain involved in grantmaking, with their intent, name and pattern of charitable giving maintained — in perpetuity if they wish.
- With ACF, your clients also have the freedom to give outright gifts — cash, stock, closely held securities, real estate, or personal property and receive maximum tax benefits – all while helping the community now and forever.
- Your clients also have the ability to make deferred gifts through life insurance policies, charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities, receiving gaining tax and financial benefits.
