The Ionia Community Foundation gives back

Community foundations provide a simple, powerful, and highly personal approach to giving. The Ionia Community Foundation offers a variety of giving tools to help people achieve their philanthropic goals. The Ionia Community Foundation gives priority to projects that address the areas of art and culture, community development, education, environment, health, or social
needs and that:
• Represent an innovative, start-up effort or are capital in nature (e.g., construction,
renovation, equipment)
• Promote cooperation among agencies without duplicating services
• Obtain the necessary additional funding to implement and maintain the project
• Are located in Ionia or the surrounding area
• Strengthen or improve agency self-sufficiency or efficiency
• Yield substantial community benefits for the resources invested
• Serve broad segment of the community
• Encourage additional and permanent funding or matching gifts from other donors

You can make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, or other assets to the Ionia Community Foundation. Most charitable gifts qualify for maximum tax advantage under federal law. For more information and ideas on ways to integrate your financial planning with charitable giving, ask your financial advisor or contact Jonse Young, donor services director at 616.454.1751 x108.
