How to Give
There are many ways to give to the Fremont Area Community Foundation. Some methods may enable you to enjoy increased income and reduced taxes. Life income programs may eliminate or significantly reduce capital gains taxes on appreciated assets. Gifts can be made using cash, securities, bonds, real estate, or personal property.
General Gift or Bequest
You may give a sum of money or a percentage of your estate for the endowment of the Foundation. This money provides ongoing support for the Foundation’s giving to the community.
You may make an annual gift to the Foundation membership campaign, which provides for administrative expenses of the Foundation, thus helping to make the maximum amount of the endowment income available for grant-making.
Book of Memories
You may make a gift to the Foundation to honor the memory of a friend or family member. The names of those memorialized are inscribed in the "Book of Memories,” an attractive, leather-bound volume displayed at the Keene Memorial Library, and noted in the newsletter and annual report of the Foundation.
Field of Interest Gift
You may designate a gift to be used for a specific charitable purpose through one of the Foundation's Field of Interest Funds. This method is designed for donors who may have some particular causes they wish to benefit, but are concerned about committing their resources to a particular organization.
Establish a Fund
The Foundation offers a wide variety of options for establishing a fund. Please see the "Establish a Fund" section of this website to learn more.
