How We Can Help You

The Idaho Community Foundation is a partner that can help you extend the range of services you offer, while you remain in control of the client relationship.

We offer several types of charitable funds and make it easy for you structure a plan for your clients. Your client can support a wide variety of causes and multiple organizations with their giving, similar to the way they could with a private foundation, but with less administrative burden on them. They can give now, give through an estate or both.

We can accept a wide variety of assets to establish a fund including appreciated securities, closely held stock and business assets, real estate, retirement assets, life insurance policies 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 also convert a private foundation to an Idaho Community Foundation Fund, relieving your clients of the administrative costs and burden of maintaining their own foundation while continuing to support their favorite organizations.

We offer you:

Responsiveness to your inquiries: We have staff in three regions of the state and are available to answer your questions in a timely fashion. Click here for a link to our ICF staff page.

Meetings with you and your clients: As questions arise, we are available to meet with you one-on-one or together with your clients to offer information and assistance on a variety of charitable giving opportunities.

Meetings with your firm: We are available to meet one-on-one with you or other members of your firm or company for a thorough discussion of the community foundation’s services and charitable giving options.

Outreach: Our staff would also be happy to speak to your local estate planning council about charitable giving through ICF.
