THE LOCAL ADVANTAGE

North Lee Community Foundation is YOUR Tri-State Area giving partner that seeks to preserve the future of this area by building endowments that provide financial support and grant funding for Tri-State Area Nonprofit Organizations, Charities, Churches and Educational Institutions.

North Lee Community Foundation is a public charity that allows donors to qualify for maximum tax advantages under federal and state law. In addition, a gift to an endowed fund may also be eligible for Iowa tax credits that are only available through qualified community foundations. Giving through North Lee Community Foundation can provide maximum tax benefits, while supporting the causes you care about most.

The Community Foundation is your best partner for this effort because…

WE KEEP YOUR GIFTS HERE

We invest with Pilot Grove Savings Bank here locally. Our fees are competitive with commercial gift funds, and with us those fees stay here. Just like buying locally, giving locally supports your community.

 

TAX BENEFITS

North Lee Community Foundation provides access to Endow Iowa Tax Credits – a 25 percent state tax credit – in addition to normal federal charitable income tax deductions for certain endowed charitable gifts. North Lee Community Foundation accepts a variety of gifts. Gifts of appreciated assets, such as stocks or real estate, receive normal charitable deductions while eliminating capital gains tax on the appreciation.

 

WE ARE AVAILABLE

Call or email us anytime, but remember we’re always available for face to face conversations. Stop in to see us, invite us to your office, or meet us at your favorite coffee shop to go over ideas, questions, or concerns. 

 

WE WILL CONNECT YOU

We grant to many Lee County nonprofits every year. Because we work closely with these organizations, we’re able to connect you to causes you care about here at home, which commercial gift funds can’t do.

 

WE CAN WORK WITH YOUR ADVISOR

We understand that you likely have a financial or legal advisor you trust and respect, and we’re happy to work with your team. We have been here since 2004, which means we’ve worked with many of local advisors to help people like you give efficiently and effectively. We can also meet at your advisor’s office to keep things easy for you.

 

WE WILL ALWAYS BE HERE

Our endowments is invested to ensure we will always be here to support your community. Whether creating an endowed fund or offering an unrestricted gift, you can be sure we will honor your charitable intent forever. To create perpetual impact, you can pass funds to the next generation or designate them to a cause you care about.
