Placer Community Foundation accepts a variety of gifts including cash, securities, real estate, and other tangible personal property. Use your gift today to support an existing fund at Placer Community Foundation, open a Donor Advised Fund, or even generate income with vehicles such as Charitable Remainder Trusts. Alternatively, your gift can be named in your will or trust, creating a simple, personalized legacy of giving. All contributions to the Placer Community Foundation are tax deductible and will be acknowledged as such by gift receipt.
A cash gift is the simplest way to establish a fund or give to an existing fund. Cash gifts are deductible to the extent of 60 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income in any one year. Deduction amounts exceeding this limit may be carried forward for additional years.
When contributing by check please make it payable to Placer Community Foundation and send to: P.O. Box 9207, Auburn, CA 95604. If you would like the gift to go to a specific fund or project at the Community Foundation, please state in the check memo.
