How We Work With You

We ensure the impact of your gifts lasts forever so that our community will always flourish.

A Personalized Approach to Giving

The Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region strives to make your charitable giving easy, personally rewarding and more beneficial to the community. Our knowledge about important issues facing the Fox Valley Region is based on strong relationships with nonprofits and our unwavering pursuit of understanding our community needs.

Individual gifts, when joined with others given through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, ensure the impact lasts forever so that our community will always flourish.

When you establish a fund within the Foundation we invite you to work with our team of skilled professionals who are dedicated to providing excellent service to help you enhance your giving experience. We can provide these personalized services:

  • Create a charitable giving plan that captures your values, beliefs and convictions.
  • Discuss ways to engage your child(ren) or other family members in charitable giving.
  • Arrange a meeting with donors who share similar charitable interests.
  • Provide information about pressing community needs.
  • Plan a site visit to see charitable work in action in the community.
  • Share information about specific grant opportunities that match your interests.
  • Help you grow your fund through thoughtful and tax-effective gifts made during lifetime and through your estate.
  • Help to document your story of giving for future generations.
