How you can create a fund: You make a gift of cash, appreciated stocks, real estate, or other assets to Sutter Creek Community Benefit Foundation.
SCCBF sets up a special fund in your name, in the name of your family or business, or in honor of any person or organization you choose.
You receive tax benefits in the year your gift is made.
Based on the type of fund you establish, you may be able to stay involved in the good works your gift makes possible. You can recommend an area or organization you’d like your gift to support, or rely on the SCCBF's experienced board to determine and address the areas of greatest need in your community.
1. Do you want the SCCFB to make grants where the community need is the greatest? Giving “Unrestricted Funds”allows us maximum flexibility to respond to changing needs in our community.
2. Do you wish to actively make grant recommendations from the fund you establish? Consider a “Donor Advised Fund”. This type of fund offers you the ability to make grant recommendations that you are passionate about.
3. Do you have a particular area of interest (e.g., history, education, environment, cultural heritage) and prefer that the SCCBF decide which program to support in your selected fields? If you establish a “Field of Interest Fund”, the Community Foundation actively solicits proposals through our competitive grantmaking program to match your interest. Earnings from funds are pooled to fund grants in particular areas.
The SCCBF board issues grants in the name of the fund you establish (if you prefer, grants can be made anonymously).
We handle the administrative details.
Your gift can be placedinto an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift and all future earnings from your gift is a permanent source of community capital, helping do good work forever.
