types-of-gifts1Each individual, family or organization we work with has unique charitable interests…and unique financial circumstances. We help you make the most of both, so you receive the greatest return on your community investment.

Charitable Instruments

A variety of giving methods tailored to your unique situation.

Outright Gift
You can make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds, real estate or other assets to Central Kentucky Community Foundation. Your charitable gift qualifies for tax advantage under federal law.

Bequest by Will
You can designate a gift or portion of your estate to Central Kentucky Community Foundation and, in some cases, receive a substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes.

Charitable Gift Annuity
You can make a gift of cash or property to Central Kentucky Community Foundation now, get immediate tax benefits, and ensure that you or a loved one receive fixed quarterly or annual income payments for life.

Charitable Remainder Trust
You can place cash or property in a trust that pays annual income to you (or another named beneficiary) for life. After your death, the remainder of your trust transfers to Central Kentucky Community Foundation and is placed into a charitable fund you have selected. You receive income tax benefits the year you establish your trust.

Charitable Lead Trust
You can place cash or property into a trust that pays a fixed amount to Central Kentucky Community Foundation for the number of years you select. Once this period ends, the assets held by the trust are transferred to beneficiaries you name. In some cases, you receive a substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes.
