You & Philanthropy
As one of Florida’s largest and oldest community foundations, the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties has the expertise and leadership to help you build a meaningful charitable legacy that makes a difference now… and forever.
A Community of Donors… The Community Foundation serves donors of all kinds:
- Private Foundations
- Nonprofit organizations
Charitable giving is one of life’s most rewarding endeavors. The Community Foundation can make the most of your personal giving by offering a simple, powerful and flexible means to handle charitable contributions and grantmaking, now and far into the future. And because we are a 501(c)(3) public charity, your contributions qualify for the maximum charitable deductions permitted by law.
Family philanthropy can be challenging, but the details don't have to be overwhelming. We can provide your family with insight, personalized services and a platform to generate family conversations about giving with the next generation of philanthropists. For example, you can establish a family donor advised fund and, together, make recommendations on grants with the help of our knowledgeable community impact staff.
From funding partnerships to grant administration services, the Community Foundation offers unique options to private foundations seeking to maximize their impact.
With increasing charitable solicitations, corporate charity has become an expensive proposition. It takes time to review grant requests, evaluate the organization, issue as well as track the grant. By setting up a Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation, you can simultaneously simplify and focus charitable giving. We’ll handle all of the administrative work. And by utilizing the Community Foundation’s technical and grantmaking services, your firm can help increase the effects of corporate philanthropy in our community.
Nonprofit organizations can establish an Agency endowment fund with the Community Foundation in order to grow assets to meet both current and future needs. The Foundation offers consistent stewardship, professional investment management, and effective administration, all at a reasonable cost to local nonprofits.
