Build an impact during your lifetime

Once you have provided for your loved ones and determined your philanthropic goals, a number of giving opportunities are available for your unique situation. You can make charitable gifts to the Richland County Foundation to expand your impact during your lifetime.   

Outright Gift

You can make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds, marketable assets or from your IRA. Your charitable gift qualifies for the maximum tax advantage available by law.

We have an online donation option

If you would like to make a gift of stocks, bonds, marketable assets or from your IRA, please contact Vice President of Finance & Operations Bob Barrett at 419-525-3020 or

Charitable Gift Annuities

A Charitable Gift Annuity allows you to make a gift to the community while at the same time providing you with a guaranteed income stream. It is an ideal plan for those who would like to make a significant gift during their lifetime but depend on the income from their assets.

Charitable Remainder Trust

You can place cash or property in a trust that pays an 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 a charitable fund you have selected. You receive income tax benefits the year you establish your trust.

Charitable Lead Trust

You can place cash or property into a trust that pays a fixed amount to your community foundation for the number of years you select. 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.
