Invest in Our Future

Unrestricted Gifts

An endowed gift to Rose Community Foundation today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here's how it works: Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Rose Community Foundation. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Delay Your Payments

If you are younger than 60 or don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the free guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.

Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie want to make sure Rose Community Foundation continues to flourish long after they're gone. They also want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. So they make a $25,000 donation to Rose Community Foundation, which we invest. Each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. The rest of the income is reinvested in the fund; that's what allows it to support us indefinitely. Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
