Ways to Give
Your gift supports needs in Tompkins County! Ways to do that can be with a check, credit card, stock, from your retirement account, through your will or donor advised fund.
Are you looking for income and giving to charity? A Pooled Income Fund (PIF), operates like a mutual fund: A donor receives annual income based on their share of the pool. After death, the remaining value becomes a charitable gift to the Foundation. See our Planned Giving page for more information.
Did you know gifts of stock can give you a tax benefit? Donors are surprised that giving stock gifts reduces their capital gains without changing their portfolio. Also, donors over 70 ½ are making tax-free gifts from their IRA to have a bigger impact each year.
