Introduction A group of forward-thinking community leaders created the Community Foundation of Henderson County in 1982 with the vision of making our community a better place to live now and for countless years into the future. The Community Foundation serves individuals, families, businesses and organizationsâ€”people who share a common desire to create a pool of charitable dollars from which grants are awarded for diverse charitable causes. Because most Community Foundation funds are permanent, they will provide financial support to our area forever, impacting innumerable lives and shaping the future of Henderson County, NC.

of building an endowment. An endowment is a permanent fund that provides financial support for a charitable cause far beyond the donor’s lifetime. Understanding the need for skilled nurses and seeing the shortage of trained professionals to fill these positions, Lorina Culpepper established the Lorina Culpepper Career in Nursing endowment with the Community Foundation of Henderson County. This fund provides assistance for individuals in Henderson County who wish to advance their nursing career. It is Mrs. Culpepper’s desire to do something positive to help those who work to care for others. Emphasis is placed on, but not limited to, providing financial aid to assist with the educational advancement or training for those currently employed in a nursing career. “Forty years ago there was a shortage of nurses,” observed Lorina, “and today that still holds true.”

WAYS TO GIVE
Types of Funds Meet Future Challenges and Opportunities The Community Foundation depends on its unrestricted assets not only to address the changing community needs, but also to facilitate innovative responses to issues and enhance the quality of life for all residents. When you establish an unrestricted endowment, your legacy provides support that is flexible and available to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
Support a Visionary Cause Field of interest endowments enable you to focus your giving on the issues and causes you care about most, such as youth, the environment, education, health care, the arts and more. With this type of fund, your gift remains flexible to meet community needs in your interest area—even as needs change over time.
Active Giving Approach Donor advised endowments are convenient, flexible tools for individuals, families, or businesses that want to be personally involved in suggesting grant awards made possible by their gifts. If you have a range of community interests, you may find that it’s an ideal vehicle for fulfilling your charitable wishes.
Designate Specific Charities
Give Now To an existing endowment … You can contribute any amount to the Community Foundation’s 480+ funds that benefit a broad range of issues and organizations. Make a gift to an endowment that supports a cause you believe in – there are many to choose from on pages 25-28. The Community Foundation accepts gifts of cash, credit card (MasterCard or Visa) stock (both publicly-traded and closely-held) real estate and insurance policies.
Or, start your own endowment … You can establish and name an endowment fund with its own unique purpose for a minimum contribution of $5,000. Creating an endowment ensures your legacy will live on forever. There are many types of endowments you can establish, which are listed below. Please note that many of these endowments can also be created in the future through bequests, or through planned gifts which provide you income for life and establish an endowment upon your death.
A designated endowment provides you a wonderful way to give back to one or more specific organizations that have touched your life. Your gift provides more than just funding—your favorite organization will benefit from the Community Foundation’s investment stewardship and ability to manage endowment funds.
Support Education Scholarship endowments may be created as a memorial to someone special with eligibility criteria that exemplify that person’s goals and Values. Or you may use one to express your own educational values—or those of your family or business.
Nonprofits Stabilizing the Future For nonprofit organizations to ensure their future, the organization itself may create an organizational endowment. In doing so, the organization is able to increase the long-term stability of the organiation and broaden community awareness for the need for support while remaining focused on their mission. In good times and bad, these organizations can count on permanent funding resources year after year.
Planned Living Gifts
The Community Foundation understands that many people choose to live life to the fullest, provide for their family, and make a charitable gift upon their death. The Community Foundation offers gift planning expertise regarding bequests, charitable trusts, and charitable annuities for gifts of all types including retirement plans, life insurance, real estate, securities and other appreciated assets. We are your resource in philanthropy, helping you give to causes you care about most. Call the office to set up an appointment with staff to learn more.
Life Income Gifts
A donor can realize the tax advantages of making a gift now, especially of highlyappreciated assets, while still receiving income from that asset. A planned gift offers that flexibility while ensuring that the donor’s charitable intent is met upon his or her death. Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) - A donor irrevocably transfers property to the Community Foundation in exchange for a commitment by the Foundation to pay the donor, or beneficiaries designated by the donor, a specified amount each year for life. Annuity payments can either begin immediately or be deferred to a later date specified by the donor. Donors realize an immediate income tax deduction for their gift. The minimum contribution to establish a CGA is $10,000. Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) - A Charitable Remainder Trust provides life income for the donor, and additional beneficiaries if desired, while allowing an income tax deduction in the year the trust is created. After the death of the donor and beneficiaries, the Community Foundation will ensure the remainder of the trust assets will benefit the charities the donor designated during his or her lifetime. The minimum contribution to establish a CRT is $50,000.
Other Funds You Can Establish
Non-Endowed Donor Advised Fund - This fund is a flexible and convenient option for donors who want to be actively involved in philanthropy, but may not have time to do the background work that goes into making informed charitable decisions. Donors make grant recommendations to the Community Foundation’s board of directors, while the Foundation takes care of the paperwork and check-writing. Because this fund is not a permanent endowment, the donor may recommend the Community Foundation distribute any portion of the fund to the nonprofit organizations of the donor’s choice. Supporting Organization - This is a special type of charitable organization that, based upon its relationship to the Community Foundation, is itself classified as a public charity. A supporting organization provides the flexibility desired by donors to meet their objectives.
PROFESSIONAL ADVISORS The Community Foundation greatly appreciates the many referrals our area’s professional advisors have made over the years.

Charitable Gift Annuities The following donors have established Charitable Gift Annuities. A donor transfers assets to the Community Foundation in exchange for a commitment to pay the donor, or beneficiaries designated by the donor, a specified amount each year for life. Annuity payments can either begin immediately or be deferred to a later date specified by the donor. Donors realize an immediate income tax reduction for their gift.

Life Estate Gifts The following donors have donated his or her home to the Community Foundation, but retain the right to live there for the rest of his or her life. A gift of the home now, with retained life residency, gives the donor the same estate tax benefits as gift by will. Plus, the donor receives a current income tax deduction. Upon the donor’s death, or if the donor gives up the right to live in the home, then the proceeds from the sale of the home will revert to an endowment to carry out the donor’s charitable wishes.
Charitable Remainder Trusts The following individuals have established Charitable Remainder Trusts, which provide life income for the donor, and additional beneficiaries if desired, while allowing an income tax deduction the year the trust was created. After the death of the donor and beneficiaries, the Community Foundation will ensure the remainder of the trust assets will benefit the charities the donor designated during his or her lifetime.
