Central Carolina Community Foundation 2008 Annual Report

impact

Need, in our community, exists vast and diverse.

From its nucleus emanates concentric circles that shift and converge across our landscape in ways both dynamic and predictable. Look closely and there — living alongside need — you will see Central Carolina Community Foundation. With a unique vantage point, and a mission of philanthropy, it may well be that no other organization in the Midlands is better able to match need with solution. By extending its arms deep into the community, the foundation seeks to not just make a difference, but to create an impact that is meaningful and sustainable.

dear friends As I look back over Central Carolina Community Foundation’s many accomplishments of 2008, central to its efforts was the redefining of a very powerful mission statement. I bring this accomplishment to your attention because it encapsulates so much of the work that has gone on in the past year by both the Foundation’s board of trustees and its staff: setting a strategic vision, seeking new initiatives and expanding the role of the Foundation within the community. Susie VanHuss, our interim president and CEO, has expertly directed the Foundation during this important period and we are grateful for her leadership and inexhaustible “yes, we can” attitude. We look to 2009, our 25th anniversary, with great excitement. We march forward with an updated logo and greater opportunity to impact a community in need. We are excited about new strategic areas of focus, expanded opportunities for collaborating with other leaders in the community, and to leveraging our grant dollars with external dollars. Expect to see the announcement of several new initiatives early in the year, along with the naming of our new president and CEO. Central Carolina Community Foundation truly exists to promote, facilitate and expand philanthropy in our community, creating a sustainable impact through responsible giving. Please join us in our anniversary year as we celebrate past achievements and work together for even greater community impact in the years that lie ahead.

Midlands Fatherhood Coalition

Strengthening families; impacting children’s lives

Dads Make a Difference. This is the credo for the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition, which is a comprehensive, holistic fatherhood program serving Richland, Lexington and Fairfield counties. Like the Coalition, the Community Foundation understands the importance that involved, committed fathers have in their children’s lives. This is why the Foundation invested $10,000 in the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition for the Richland and Lexington county sites. The Coalition strengthens families by helping low-income, non-custodial fathers overcome barriers that may prevent them from becoming an integral and effective part of their children’s lives. Realizing these issues and barriers are complex, the 24-week program involves multilayered components such as values assessment, parenting, employment, legal rights and responsibilities. The program greatly impacts the children who benefit from the financial and emotional support of their fathers and the involvement of both parents in their lives.

One of the first barriers that many of these families face is a strained relationship between the mother and the father. “One of our most significant needs is for mediation services to connect the parents and begin the healing process that results in increased opportunities for fathers to spend time with their children,” said Lexington Site Director, Charles Brown. The grant from the Community Foundation allowed the Coalition to provide a mediator to set up individual meetings between parents as well as hold a group mediation session. “I can’t tell you how much the mediation services have impacted our families,” said Mr. Brown. “We had fathers calling to ask how and when they could receive mediation.” Surveys show that 100% of the fathers who participated in these mediation services reported satisfaction with the process and an increased knowledge of the importance of time spent with their child and the mother. “We feel strongly that mediation services will continue to improve our

The Midlands Fatherhood Coalition has given me the support and strength it takes to be a better father. I have gained a better understanding of what being a father is all about and the important role that I play in my children’s lives. The group meetings have been particularly effective because hearing other people’s problems has helped me to learn what not to do to avoid making the same mistakes.  Matthew Zenoni Midlands Fatherhood Coalition participant efforts to foster a relationship between the non-custodial father and the child’s mother,” stated Mr. Brown. “This grant has afforded us this opportunity to expand these services and we hope to continue to build on these efforts,” he added.

Clarkson Fund

A legacy impacts students in the Lower Richland Community

Growing up, Zack and Rachel Clarkson’s children knew their parents had good hearts. They saw first-hand how the Clarksons regularly provided food, clothing, firewood, money and a myriad of other services that reflected their genuine love for people less fortunate than they were. But they didn’t realize just how much others thought of their parents until after their father’s death in 2000.

But as time moved on, the family began to discover some of the disadvantages of creating a private foundation. These disadvantages— costs, ongoing administrative burdens and IRS restrictions— encouraged the family to search for an alternative. Brenda Clarkson Turpeau, the Foundation’s President, decided to talk with the Community Foundation about the family’s options.

“After my father passed away, people came up to us and shared their stories of how our father had helped them,” said his daughter, Brenda Clarkson Turpeau. The Lower Richland community proposed a living memorial for Zack, and in 2003, his family established The Zack C. Clarkson Sr. & Rachel Scott Clarkson Foundation in his memory and his wife’s honor.

After considering their options, the family chose to move a large portion of the Clarkson Foundation’s assets to a scholarship fund at the Community Foundation. The Zack and Rachel Clarkson Scholarship Fund will provide scholarships to students at Lower Richland High School, with a focus on economically-disadvantaged African American males.

The Clarkson Foundation sought to carry on the work Zack and Rachel did in their Hopkins community. It did so by continuing to provide human services and educational opportunities for people in the area.

“My father was always an advocate for education,” recalled Ms. Turpeau. “He was unable to receive a college education because of many other demanding responsibilities such as WWII, but he promoted the importance of education to others.”

Through this scholarship fund, the family will be able to maintain Zack’s support of education, honor his roots in the Lower Richland community and focus their resources to help address the high school drop-out rate. Zack and Rachel’s legacy will live on through the students their generosity has helped to succeed.

Palmetto Place Fund

Impacting children in need for generations to come A safe haven. A refuge from pain. A blanket of security. These are all things a home should be for a child, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. For these children, Palmetto Place Children’s Emergency Shelter offers a safe and caring environment to help them through their most difficult and vulnerable times. Palmetto Place was founded in 1977 as a temporary, emergency children’s shelter by the Junior Women’s Club of Columbia (JWC), who remain actively involved with the shelter to this day. Children are placed at the shelter after they are removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect, or when their parents are incarcerated or hospitalized and the children have no place to go. While there, the children receive medical and mental health care, nutritious meals, and clothing and personal care items. Throughout its 31-year history, Palmetto Place has been funded through government reimbursements, the United Way of the Midlands and the JWC, and general fundraising efforts and events. But in 2007, the organization recognized the need to ensure the vision and security of the shelter for the future.

“We recognized it was in our best interest to place some of our resources where they could grow and help provide long-term stability for the organization,” said Executive

Director Marisa Merchant Brooks. “One of the goals in our strategic plan is to build a new facility, so we are making provisions to begin a capital campaign,” explained Mrs. Brooks. The shelter needed an option that would provide them with consistent management and longterm growth. “We understand there will be more expenses to operate at a new facility than we can foresee at this point,” added Mrs. Brooks. Palmetto Place decided to start an Agency Endowment fund with Central Carolina Community Foundation. This fund will grow over time and

help provide the long-term operating expenses for a new facility. The shelter chose to work with the Community Foundation because of the services we offer and the positive feedback they received after speaking with some of our other clients. Mrs. Brooks met with the Foundation’s Vice President for Development Larry Snipes, “and the more information I received, the more I realized that this was the best fit for us,” she explained. Through the Community Foundation, this endowment will continue the important work of Palmetto Place Children’s Emergency Shelter well into the future. For more information about Palmetto Place or how to support their mission, please visit www.palmettoplaceshelter.org or call 803.786.6819.

What the Community Foundation offers our Donors As the preeminent philanthropic organization in our community, the Foundation offers many benefits to our donors. Flexibility The Community Foundation makes giving easy and flexible, by accepting a wide variety of gifts. We allow individuals, families, companies or nonprofits to establish a fund that is tailored to meet specific charitable interests and financial goals. Efficiency We offer a creative, cost-effective and tax-efficient way for people to invest in the charitable causes they care about most. Endowed gifts to the Community Foundation are pooled and invested in a balanced portfolio for maximum growth and impact. Local Expertise Our professional staff has an in-depth understanding of the issues, opportunities and resources that shape our community. We monitor various aspects of need and can help you learn more about local agencies and programs that make a difference in the areas you care about most. Permanence Your gift to the Foundation and all future earnings from that gift is a permanent source of community capital, helping do good work forever. Endowed gifts remain with the Foundation for a lifetime and beyond with perpetual stewardship of your original charitable intentions.

Establish Your Giving Plan Central Carolina Community Foundation offers simple and effective options for donors who want to improve our community through philanthropy. Commonwealth Funds are supported through your unrestricted gifts and allow the Community Foundation to respond to the ever-changing needs of the Midlands. Income is distributed after a competitive review process to nonprofits that have innovative programs and a substantial impact within the community. Field-of-Interest Funds support a specific focus area of your choice such as arts, education, human services or youth. By identifying and distributing grants concurrent with your area of concern, a field-of-interest fund ensures your interests are supported, but does not limit the funding to one particular organization. Donor-Advised Funds provide both immediate impact and sustainable benefit while giving you the flexibility to give to many varying organizations and programs. At the core is

a permanent ‘endowed’ fund which makes a portion available for distribution to charitable causes each year and will grow over time. Alongside the permanent fund can be a nonpermanent ‘escrow’ fund which allows for distribution of the entire balance in amounts as small as $100. Designated Funds allow you to identify specific nonprofit organizations to receive grants. You may choose one or several organizations to support with your fund. An annual income from the fund is paid to the designated organization(s) to be used to support operations and programs. Agency Endowment Funds provide a simple way for your nonprofit organization to establish a permanent endowment, providing a source of lasting support. You can choose to receive the income earned annually from your fund or let it go into the principle and continue to grow.

Scholarship Funds allow you to help provide educational opportunities for future generations. These funds are typically set up to honor loved ones or someone who has helped you become successful in life. You may designate the criteria for the scholarship and assist in the selection process by serving on the scholarship selection committee if you so choose.

Decide How to Give We offer a variety of giving tools to help you achieve your charitable goals. There are two ways to give to the Community Foundation — immediate or planned gifts — and there are several methods by which to contribute these gifts. Each of these choices offers various financial and tax benefits. Immediate Giving Options Cash gifts are the easiest way to create a named fund or add to an existing fund at the Community Foundation. Cash gifts are fully deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income in any one year and can be made with a check, wire transfer or a national credit card. Securities (bonds, mutual funds and stock), may be used to establish a fund or add to an existing fund. The full fair market value is deductible as a charitable contribution up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Making a gift of appreciated securities allows you to avoid the capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the gift. Real Estate gifts are an ideal way to attain a level of giving you might not have previously considered possible.

By donating real estate to the Community Foundation, you receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law and avoid capital gains tax. Planned Giving Options Bequests are gifts left to the Community Foundation in your estate. Many donors who may be concerned about their future finances choose a bequest as a way to positively influence the future of their community after they are gone. Beneficiary gifts allow you to make a charitable contribution by naming the Community Foundation as the beneficiary on your life insurance or retirement accounts. Because the Community Foundation is exempt from paying federal income taxes, the full amount of the gift will be available to support organizations and causes that are important to you.

Charitable Gift Annuities allow you to arrange a generous gift to your community, while providing yourself a new income source you can count on for the rest of your life. This option provides immediate annuity payments for you and a deferred charitable gift for your community. You receive a tax deduction for the charitable portion of your gift. Trusts can be very simple, or they can be as complex as necessary to meet your financial, charitable and personal goals. Charitable lead trusts provide income to the Community Foundation immediately and for a period of years, after which the property reverts to you. A charitable remainder trust allows you to receive an income for life. Payments may vary from year to year or can be fixed at the time the gift is made.

Legacy Society Central Carolina Community Foundation created the Legacy Society to honor those who have made a lasting commitment to our community by including charitable gifts to the Foundation in their estate. The Legacy Society provides a way for the Community Foundation to recognize and thank these individuals during their lifetimes and beyond.

Future Benefits for our Donors The Community Foundation is currently working to upgrade the services we are able to provide our donors. In 2009, we plan to offer a host of online services for our fundholders. Donors will be able to check their fund balance and recommend a grant for distribution online. You may even be able to research nonprofit organizations in our service area directly from our site. Our goal is to make it as easy and convenient as possible for you to reach your philanthropic goals.

Legacy Society members will always be recognized as contributing members of their generation, leaving a record of generosity and support for future generations to see and respect. We appreciate their vision and insight for our community’s future. If you would like to become a member of the Legacy Society simply notify us of your plans to leave a gift to the Community Foundation. Gayle O. Averyt Mary Wyatt Balbach Mr. and Mrs. Robert G.
