"Nobody made a greater
mistake than he who
did nothing because
he could only do
a little."

-Edmund Burke

Ways to Give

The Marshall Community Foundation successfully meets the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations administered by the Council on Foundations in Washington D.C. National Standards represents the highest measure of accountability and transparency in philanthropy.

Ways to Give

There are a variety of giving methods tailored to your unique situation.  You can make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, or other assets to your community foundation.  Your charitable gift qualifies for maximum tax advantage under state and federal law.

Gift of Cash

Cash is the simplest, most convenient way to contribute. A donor may write a check to the Marshall Community Foundation, designate his/her gift placement and take a tax deduction for this gift.

Make a Credit Card Gift

For your convenience.
Donate Now through  The Marshall Community Foundation accepts credit card donations through Network for Good.  Network for Good is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the Web to help people get more involved in their communities - from volunteering and donating money, to speaking out on issues they care about.  Donors can make a credit card donation securely online to their charity of choice.

Bequest by Will

A legacy of giving.
Including a charitable bequest in your will is a simple way to make a lasting gift to your community.  When you make this gift through your community foundation, it becomes your personal legacy of giving.

Gift of Real Estate

A charitable gift unearthed.
Making a charitable gift of real estate through your community foundation can help you turn your property gains into community good.  With the help of your community foundation, you can use it to fulfill your charitable interests and receive financial and tax benefits.

Gift of Life Insurance

Community as your beneficiary.
Life insurance provides a simple way for you to give a significant gift to charity, with tax benefits that you can enjoy during your lifetime.

Gift of Appreciated Stock

Turning stock market gains into community investment.
Everybody wins when you make a gift of appreciated stock to your community foundation.  Your gains are put to good use.  Your gift of stock is reinvested in your community, and it qualifies for an immediate tax deduction equal to the full market value. 

Charitable Gift Annuity

Income for today, a gift for tomorrow.
Giving through a Charitable Gift Annuity allows you to arrange a generous gift to your community, while providing you with a new income source for the rest of your life.

Charitable Remainder Trust

Planning for the future - for you and your community.
Giving through a Charitable Remainder Trust allows you to receive income for the rest of your life, knowing that whatever remains will benefit your community.

Charitable Lead Trust

Giving back to community and your loved ones.
A Charitable Lead Trust helps you build a charitable fund with the Marshall Community Foundation during the trust's term.  When the trust terminates, the remaining assets are transferred to you or your heirs, tax free.
