How We Partner With You

We can help you structure a plan for your clients to give now, through their estate or both. We offer several types of charitable funds, including Donor Advised Funds.

We can accept a wide variety of assets to establish a fund, including appreciated securities, closely held stock and business assets, retirement assets and more. We are an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so gifts to the Idaho Community Foundation are eligible for tax benefits.

We can convert a private foundation to an Idaho Community Foundation Fund, relieving your clients of administrative costs and complexities while continuing to support their favorite organizations.

We respect your relationship with your client and can work with you alone, with you and your client together or directly with your client.
