Benefits of Giving through DCCF

Giving should warm your heart, not burden you with a lot of tax record keeping and other worries. Working with us makes giving:


You can give to an existing fund, or start a fund with a simple document that requires less than an hour to prepare. We’ll guide you carefully through the process. Once the fund is set up, our¬†professional staff keeps detailed records and sends you quarterly reports summarizing account activity.


Tell us your goals and we’ll help you meet them. Give now or give later through an estate plan. Give to an existing fund, start your own fund, or make an unrestricted gift that we will put to good use in the community on your behalf. It’s all up to you.


Satisfaction comes from knowing that your gifts truly matter. We know you consider your giving to be an investment in your community, your church, your alma mater or whatever causes you select. Giving wisely rewards you with great satisfaction and joy.


Together, we are building a permanent collection of funds for our community.† Our board of directors ensures that these funds will grow in perpetuity and will continue to carry out the charitable objectives of the donors who established them.

If you are considering setting up a Donor-Advised Fund or a Private Foundation, you may wish to review the comparison chart of these two options. You will find information regarding tax implications, confidentiality, flexibility and personal service.
