Greater Giving

Most of us have separate accounts for money we want to use for specific purposes. We have checking accounts, money market accounts, 401(k) retirement accounts and 529 college savings accounts, so it is natural that we would have a separate charitable giving account as well.

At the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, you can set up a donor-advised fund to help organize and maximize your giving. It is quick and easy to do, and you can customize the fund to meet your needs as an individual, family or business.

Additionally, you can choose to name younger generations as future advisors to the fund, passing along the gift of giving and creating a legacy for your philanthropy.

Donate to a Donor-Advised Fund

Give cash, stock or other assets to the fund. Your donation is tax deductible, and we do not require a minimum balance for the fund.

Grant to any 501(c)(3) public charity, including churches and schools.

Use your fund to support your favorite charities.

Grow your charitable dollars by investing the assets in the fund.
