We have an outstanding reputation for integrity and service to donors.  Our staff is skilled in working to accomplish complex gift situations.  We value confidentiality and can offer anonymity when desired.

Maximum Benefits

As a public charity, we offer maximum federal tax benefits.  We can tailor giving plans to meet your client’s particular needs.  Starting a fund at the Lenawee Community Foundation is easier and significantly less expensive than establishing a private foundation.

We can:

  • Meet with you and your clients to help craft a philanthropic plan.
  • Run a sample gift illustration to provide you with an accurate picture of the financial and philanthropic impact of a charitable gift.
  • Handle the administrative work surrounding charitable giving.
