Why Donate to the Milbank Community Foundation?

The Milbank Community Foundation enables many area residents to give financial support to organizations and causes in the community.  Gifts to the foundation cost less to the donor because of the excellent tax benefits of a community foundation.  Some large gifts can be structured in such a way that because of the tax savings the donation costs very little to the donor.  Gifts in the form of stocks, mutual funds, bonds, or other property that have appreciated in value can provide additional savings because the donor avoids the capital gains tax that would be payable if the appreciated property was sold.

In Memoriam

Memorial contributions offer a permanent way to remember friends and relatives while providing a lasting gift to the community.

In Honor

Holidays, birthdays, retirements, anniversaries, or other special occasions are times when individuals can be honored with a gift to the Milbank Community Foundation.

Gifts are Tax Deductible.

The Milbank Community Foundation qualifies as a public charity under federal tax laws, and all gifts are tax deductible under the Internal Revenue code.  Depending upon your income bracket, you may find that you can make a more substantial gift than you had originally intended since the government, through allowable tax deductions, stands part of the cost.
