Making Contributions to our Endowment Fund is Simple:
Cash or Stocks
Gifts of cash or stock to our endowment in memory or honor of a loved one are popular ways to help. Gifts of stock can be made easily by calling Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice at 941-486-4600.
Will or Trust
Naming our endowment fund in a will is a wonderful way to be remembered. Or, Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice staff is available to help with gift planning tools. Gifts such as charitable remainder trusts are designed to provide income payments to our endowment fund.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is a contract between the donor and Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice that provides the donors and/or other named beneficiaries with a guaranteed income at a competitive rate of return. After their lifetime(s), the gift annuity establishes a permanent charitable fund at the Foundation to benefit causes or organizations the donors have chosen. The gift annuity is backed by the Foundation’s assets.
Life insurance policies enable virtually everyone to make a gift. You may choose to give a paid-up policy, buy a new policy, or buy insurance to replace a charitable bequest.
IRA or Qualified Plan and Real Property with Lifetime Use
Let the professional staff of Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice discuss with you assets that can provide for you during your lifetime and furnish a substantial gift to our organization’s endowment fund later.
Your generous donations for over 40 years are directly helping Loveland Center students who are developmentally disabled.
However, more safeguard measures are needed for their secure future. In just a few years, many of our students will be over 50 years of age. Their parents will either be unable to provide support or will no longer be living. There is the added factor to meet the needs of the community.
Gifts to the Loveland Legacy Endowment Fund will build a more secure future for Loveland and our students through:
- Student Scholarships
- Supported Living Programs
- Supported Employment
- Daily Senior Activities
- Employment Training
- Community Volunteering
- Loveland Follies (In partnership with Venice Theatre)
