Why Work with Placer Community Foundation?PCF is an ideal choice for a charitable partner if you want to invest in social impact.
Your Community Foundation
PCF serves as a resource, leader, and catalyst for philanthropy by connecting donors with nonprofits, and nonprofits with each other across the region. Our expertise is valuable not only for those who know where they want to give – whether their charitable interests are local or elsewhere around the globe – but also for the many residents who want to give back to their communities but may not have the time or tools to identify local needs and how to make the greatest community impact. The Community Foundation manages philanthropic initiatives for donors and nonprofits, reducing administrative costs while increasing tax advantages. We ensure that gifts go where they will do the most good, now and in the future.
Here are five reasons why Placer Community Foundation is an ideal choice for a charitable partner if you want to invest in social impact.
1. We are creative, flexible and efficient. Our charitable funds and services can maximize your giving and make your charitable goals a reality.
2. We are philanthropic experts. We can accept simple or complex gifts including: cash, real estate, life insurance, publicly traded (or closely held) securities, business interests, gifts through wills and retirement plan assets.
3. We are local experts. We can provide you with unique experiences and opportunities to learn about needs and opportunities in the community and make your impact.
4. We are investment experts. We use long-term investment strategies to ensure that your giving will go further in our community.
5. We are a community of givers. When you open your fund at Placer Community Foundation, you join a community of individuals, families and companies who are committed to doing great things.
Our work is much more than serving as a repository for donor funds, as important as that work is. We have a strong history and commitment to changing our communities, for building bridges between people who are committed to making the world a better place and the causes to which they are dedicated.
