Giving the "gift of memories" can be one of the most comforting and rewarding donations. While most bereavement gifts are meant to be given soon after a loss, these gifts can be received at any time, even months or years after a loss. The memorial gift given to Midlands Community Foundation can live in perpetuity or can be distributed immediately to a specific charity or to several nonprofit groups specified by the Memorial Fund.
Types of Memorial Funds
Consider the following when setting up a Memorial Fund for a loved one at Midlands Community Foundation:
- Do you want to support a specific issue? A Field of Interest Fund designates and supports a particular area of charitable interest. Examples include, but not limited to youth/children, health, environment and art.
- Do you have certain organizations you want to support? A Designated Fund supports the good work of a specific non-profit organization. This fund channels your gift to a charitable organization that provides a lasting and mutually beneficial arrangement for both the nonprofit and the loved one.
- Do you want to support a certain organization? A Donor Advised Fund allows you to choose a different charity or cause to donate each year. This fund partners with Midlands Community Foundation who will recommend donations to help organizations important to you.
A Memorial Fund can be named after your loved one, be left anonymous or called whatever you would like. Midlands Community Foundation's staff can help you determine what type of fund you want and the amount you need to set up the fund. With the ever changing community needs, it is Midlands Community Foundation's purpose to create a personal legacy of giving for you and your loved one.
