Giving Options

Central Valley Community Foundation commends those who have a philanthropic wish to give back to their community. By planning ahead, visionary donors can make life better for generations to come. We can work with you, your financial advisor and attorney to help you plan your estate.

The Power of Endowment:

By endowing your gifts today, you can make a difference in our community during your lifetime and provide a gift that lasts forever. Endowments allow individuals, families, organizations and businesses to assure lasting impact through preservation of principal and granting investment gains, earned interest and dividends. We will make grants in the name of your fund forever and always honor your charitable wishes.

You can accomplish a range of financial and charitable goals with planned gifts. Read Moreā€¦
