Stocks or Bonds

A gift of  stocks or bonds is an easy way for you to make a gift and may help you save taxes twice. Not only can you receive an income-tax charitable deduction, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.

Real Estate

You can make an outright gift of real property now or leave it as a bequest to the Community Foundation.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets— 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax deferred plan— is an excellent way to make a gift.  There are several ways this type of gift can be made to best fit your needs.  Please visit with you financial advisor.


Many people find that the protection offered by their policies is no longer needed later in life. A life insurance policy can be an ideal tool for charitable giving. This gift may also give you both a current and future income tax deduction.

Planned Gift

Planned, or charitable gifts, are gift arrangements that have specific tax advantages and may include lifetime income to the donor or a beneficiary named by the donor.   Please learn more by clicking Planned Giving.

Gifts In-kind

An in-kind contribution is a tangible item or product, which once donated, can be used by Sweet Grass Community Foundation. Goods such as office supplies and equipment help us make a difference.
