The Phillips County Community Foundation offers a wide variety of options to satisfy your philanthropic goals.

Support Community Needs

What better way to leave a lasting legacy than to preserve a community set to thrive for generations in the years to come. Here at PCCF, we can help you achieve this. By establishing an endowment fund, we invest those funds and only make withdrawals from the capital, not the principal; this is also called a permanent endowment fund.

How Does a Person Give?
In partnering with PCCF, you first need to decide what’s important to you. What charitable organization or aspect of our rural way of life do you want to help sustain. After that question has been answered, a simple phone call to the Foundation office can start one on the road towards charitable giving.


What Can a Person Give?

  • Cash, stocks and bonds, real estate and life insurance.

  • Cash gift is simplest way to establish a named fund or add to an existing fund.

  • Stocks and bonds can also be used to establish a named fund or add to an existing.

If a donor names the Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy, you receive an immediate tax deduction, which usually approximates the cash surrender value of the policy.

Memorial Gifts
Special funds can be created to handle tributes and memorials. Donors can use this giving option to:

  • Create a scholarship

  • Support a favorite charity

  • Create or sustain a youth program that keeps the memory of a loved one


Gift of Grain
By donating grain, farmers have the ability to make a gift to PCCF. For many cash basis farmers, significant tax savings can be achieved by donating crops directly to the Foundation.
