Believe it or not, the best donation isn’t always cash. Placer Community Foundation accepts a variety of gifts including securities, real estate, and other tangible personal property. All contributions to the Placer Community Foundation are tax deductible and will be acknowledged as such by gift receipt.

You can create a philanthropic legacy now and with an immediate gift, or do so later with a planned gift. PCF’s professional staff has the experience and expertise to help you successfully design and implement an effective giving plan. We strongly advise you to consult with your financial legal advisers to determine a gift that best suits you financial plan.



As a promise of our commitment to excellence and accountability, we meet the most rigorous standards in philanthropy. Our accreditation by the Council on Foundations provides assurance that we have sound policies and practices in place.
