Planned Giving
Individual Retirement Account (IRA) 

GWCF can help turn your individual retirement accounts (IRAs) into tax-saving charitable gifts. Extended tax benefits allow more people to experience the joy of giving during their lifetimes. 

Thanks to the new legislation, American seniors can make the gift of a lifetime by giving their IRAs to charity without federal tax penalty. 

New Grant Deadlines

We present new granting guidelines, reflecting our vision for a healthy and vibrant community for children, families, youth and our diverse workforce. The greatest change is that our Community Grant program now has only one deadline: September 15.
