Reasons to Give

The reasons people make gifts or establish funds with a community foundation are as broad and deep as the colors of a rainbow.

  • Many donors are attracted to the idea of permanence, since they know that a community foundation is designed to provide support for local needs now and in the future, in perpetuity.
  • Some donors want to honor a friend or family member with a memorial gift in an area that was of special interest to that person.
  • Others are beginning to establish a family tradition of local giving, and they want to build a permanent fund with their name that supports the things they care about most. They have found that a fund at the Community Foundation compares very favorably to a private foundation.
  • Many individuals see the foundation as an ideal place to leave a portion of their estate as a bequest, so that future generations of Monterey County residents will benefit from their charitable giving.
  • There are many who like the idea of "bricks and mortar" gifts, so they focus their giving on capital campaigns.
  • Others have a long-term vision of an organization's value, and want to help them build an endowment for sustained support of their programs.

If you have questions about becoming a donor please contact President/CEO, Dan Baldwin or call 831.375.9712  x115 or call your professional advisor.
