How to Give

One of the advantages of partnering with CFSEK to reach your charitable goals is the flexibility we offer in timing and structuring your gift. From writing a check to including us in your will, to establishing a charitable-remainder trust and everything in between, we make it easy and convenient for you to help improve your community.

Time your gift for maximum impact

The timing of your gift is entirely up to you. You can make a donation now or at any other time during your life. Or you can join our Legacy Society by leaving CFSEK a gift as part of your estate plan.

How to give today

You can donate to an existing fund or establish a new one. And, for your convenience, we can accept gifts of any kind of property, including:

  • Cash
  • Corporate stock, bonds, and other securities
  • Farmland or other real estate
  • Retirement accounts
  • Life insurance policies

How to give in the future

Planning future gifts can be as simple as including the Community Foundation in your will or as complex as establishing a charitable split-interest trust. We’re more than happy to work with you and your professional advisors to make your planned-giving experience as simple and effective as possible.

Plus, when you include the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas in your estate plan, you become eligible to join our Legacy Society.

Structure your gift to fit your goals

When you make a contribution to the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas, you’re in control of how your gift is structured. Do you want to keep it simple? You can make an outright gift to benefit a single nonprofit organization. Do you need something a little more complicated? We work with you, your attorney, and your other professional advisors to come up with a plan that will work for you.

And when you establish a fund with CFSEK, we give you powerful options to customize it to best fit your charitable vision.
