As a donor you decide where your donations are to be spent, and as a donor you can have as much or as little involvement as you wish. There are a variety of tax-saving vehicles that allow you to receive income while making charitable contributions. A variety of fund types, Donor Advised for instance, allow you to have a say each year in where your donations will go.
The Foundation awards grants three times a year from the earnings of our endowed funds. A benefit of donating to the Foundation is that our funds are pooled and the total of our assets is large enough to meet the fee reduction levels offered to large investors. Working with the Foundation means that a greater share of your donation will go towards its intended charitable purpose.
All donations strengthen Greene County.
