Ways to Give
Donors to new or existing funds held by the Community Foundation have many choices in how they give.
Gifts of cash are the most popular and can be made by check or credit card. Checks to any existing fund may always be sent to the Community Foundation’s Janesville office, 26 S. Jackson St., Janesville, WI 53548. Indicate which fund you are supporting. To make a safe and easy credit card donation, go to www.cfsw.org
and click on the Give Now button.
We also accept many other forms of gifts such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and personal property. Donors also may transfer assets accumulated in a qualified retirement plan or IRA account.
Another way to give to the Community Foundation is to make a bequest in your will. You may wish to designate a set amount or a percentage of your estate to one or more charitable funds of your choosing. Giving from an estate may include options of additional resources such as life insurance.
We are always happy to discuss gift options and potential tax benefits with you and your professional advisor. Contact Linda Gebhardt at 608.328.4060.

Extending learning opportunities beyond the classroom door is part of the mission of Excellence in Education funds. Consider giving your local EIE your support this year.
