Benefits of Partnering with the Ashland County Community Foundation
As a professional advisor, you probably have clients who are interested in charitable giving. At the Ashland County Community Foundation, we are committed to helping you guide your clients in achieving their philanthropic goals. Many of your clients may already be donating regularly to the organizations and programs they care about, both locally and nationally. By partnering with the Ashland County Community Foundation, you can make it easier for your clients to give effectively, while helping them receive tax benefits of which they may not be aware.
Here are just a few of the ways the Ashland County Community Foundation does this:
- We work as your partner. You stay in control of your client relationships-we're here to help you provide a full range of services to your clients.
- We understand charitable giving. Whether it's setting up an alternative to a private foundation or putting together a complicated estate plan, we have giving instruments to meet your clients' particular needs.
- We are in touch with needs in our community. We can help your clients be as effective as possible in their giving.
- We offer the opportunity to recommend charitable giving to your clients without recommending a specific charity. By working through us, your clients can support a wide range of charities, near and far.
- We help you connect across generations. When you help families establish an advised fund with us, you and they can stay involved for generations.
- We help your clients who may wish to donate a variety of assets. These might include cash, appreciated securities and real estate. These can be assets they give now or later, as part of their estate plans.
- You can help make a difference in the lives of your clients. By partnering with us, you may be able to help your clients increase their current income, increase their beneficiaries' inheritance, leave a legacy in the community, and teach their children about philanthropy.
- As a public charity, we offer maximum federal and state tax benefits. And starting a fund at a community foundation is significantly less expensive... and easier... than starting a private foundation.
- The Ashland County Community Foundation provides accurate and timely information, so you can better serve your clients. Upon request, our staff can provide printed materials and custom presentations.
