Advantages to Partnering with the Community Foundation of Central Illinois

By partnering with the Community Foundation of Central Illinois, professional advisors of many kinds—attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and others—can help their clients fulfill their financial and charitable goals.

Here are just a few of the ways the Community Foundation does this:

We work as your partner

You stay in control of your client relationships—we're here to help you provide a full range of services to your clients.

We are experts on charitable giving

We can tailor giving plans to meet your clients' particular needs.

We are experts about our community

Our extensive insight into the community can help your clients be as effective as possible in their giving.

We can accept a variety of assets

Including cash, appreciated securities, and real estate. These can be assets that are given now or in the future as part of your clients' estate plan.

You can help make a difference in the lives of your clients

By partnering with us, you may be able to help your clients increase their heirs' inheritance, leave a legacy in the community, and teach their children about philanthropy.

As a public charity, we offer maximum federal and state tax benefits

And starting a fund at a community foundation is significantly less expensive—and easier—than starting a private foundation.
