By partnering with the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area, professional advisors like you can help your clients fulfill their unique charitable goals in tax effective ways.
The Foundation can work with you and your clients to set up their own named charitable fund – an investment that benefits the community year after year and creates a personal or family legacy.
We’re Here to Help
Working with the Community Foundation, your clients have the flexibility to shape their own charitable giving to reflect their personal goals and desires; now or through a bequest gift.
Whether they want to address an urgent need in the community, memorialize a loved one, or help out a charity with a specific project, we have a giving option to help them make an impact and improve the lives of others in the community in a way that is meaningful to them.
We offer a variety of fund types – including Donor Advised and Designated Funds – and make setting up a charitable fund as simple and convenient as possible. Funds can usually be set up within a day or two, with a pledge of only $10,000.
Many individuals and families choose to work with the Community Foundation as an alternative to setting up a private foundation because of our connections to the community, and simply because it is easier administratively. It’s like having their own family foundation, but without all the expense and book-keeping. We also offer a permanent solution to your clients’ giving needs, so that families can be assured their legacy will be upheld for generations.
