Support Your Community

There are many ways to give to the Cairo Community Foundation. Some methods may enable you to enjoy increased income and reduced taxes. Life income programs may eliminate or significantly reduce capital gains taxes on appreciated assets. Gifts can be made using cash, securities, bonds, real estate, or personal property.

  • Cairo Forever Fund

    You may give a sum of money or a percentage of your estate to the Cairo Forever Fund, the Foundation’s permanent endowment fund. This money provides ongoing support for the Foundation’s giving to the community.

  • Memorial or Honorary Gift

    You may make a gift to the Foundation in honor or in memory of a friend or family member. The names of those memorialized are on the Cairo Community Foundation website, and noted in the annual report of the Foundation.

  • Field of Interest Gift

    You may designate a gift to be used for a specific charitable purpose through one of the Foundation’s Field of Interest Funds. This method is designed for donors who may have particular causes they wish to benefit, but are concerned about committing their resources to a particular organization.
