Donations Making a Difference
Giving back to one’s community is a time-honored tradition. But it can also be confusing, complicated, and time-consuming. The Phelps County Community Foundation is here to assist every step of the way. We can help you begin by talking with you about your goals and how the Foundation can help you achieve them. A primary goal of the Foundation is helping make gift giving convenient and flexible.
Let us help you meet your charitable giving objectives!
A study completed by Boston University stated that in Phelps County, Nebraska, roughly $34.5 million dollars in wealth will transfer from one generation to the next each year. Alarmingly, because of the loss of local heirs and inadequate estate planning, much of this wealth may permanently leave our area. Imagine $34 million dollars leaving our local area each year!
It doesn’t have to be that way! By remembering your Community Foundation in your will or trust, you can utilize your hard-earned wealth to benefit your community in perpetuity. In addition, the size of your taxable estate will be reduced, thereby lessening your estate burden. When preparing your will or trust, why not consider giving something back to the community that has supported your business, provided a great family home, or enriched your family’s life.
At the Phelps County Community Foundation we are committed to providing quality service to our clients. We invite you to consider how your Community Foundation may become a vital part of your estate plan. Let us help you enhance the quality of life within Phelps County. Feel free to call or stop by…we value you and we value your ideas!
