Contributions to the Boulder Junction Community Endowment Fund guarantee a strong future for Boulder Junction and benefit residents and visitors of all ages.
While the simplest way to make a difference is an outright gift of cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, or other assets, there are other ways to invest in your community through the Boulder Junction Community Foundation. Whichever you choose, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift, large or small, will benefit your community today, tomorrow, and always.
Gift of Life Insurance or Retirement Plan Beneficiary
The Boulder Junction Community Foundation as your beneficiary.
You can make a gift of beneficiary, with tax benefits that you can enjoy during your lifetime.
Bequest by Will
A legacy of giving.
You can include a charitable bequest in your will to our Restricted Endowment Fund, the Foundation in general or a Donor-Advised Fund. This is a simple way to make a lasting gift to your community. When you make this gift through your local community foundation, we establish a special fund that benefits the community forever, and becomes your personal legacy of giving. In some cases, you receive a substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes. You can also name the Community Foundation as the recipient of dividends, or as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy.
Charitable Gift Annuity
Income for today, a gift for tomorrow.
You can make a gift of cash or property to your Community Foundation now, get immediate tax benefits, and ensure that you or a loved one receive fixed quarterly or annual income payments for life.
Charitable Remainder Trust
Planning for the future – for you and your community.
You can place cash or property in a trust that pays annual income to you, or another named beneficiary, for life. After your death, the remainder of the trust transfers to your Community Foundation and is placed into the charitable fund you have selected. You receive income tax benefits in the year you establish your trust.
Charitable Lead Trust
Planning for the community – now and in the future.
You can place cash or property into a trust that pays a fixed amount to your Community Foundation for a specified number of years. Once this period ends, the assets held by the trust are transferred to the beneficiaries you name. In some cases, you receive a substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes. We recommend that you contact your financial advisor to discuss the benefits of including the Community Foundation in your tax and estate plans. It’s your legacy.
