What To Give
The Wichita Community Foundation accepts many types of charitable and planned gifts. These gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Some types may have additional conditions upon acceptance, so please contact us with any questions or concerns.
Cash and Checks
The simplest and most convenient form of giving.
By contributing appreciated securities, such as equities, bonds, or mutual funds, you can receive a double benefit of an immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the assets and an exemption to any capital gains tax on the appreciation.
By transferring ownership of your insurance policy to the Wichita Community Foundation, you will receive a tax deduction for the policy’s cash value.
A gift of real estate to the Wichita Community Foundation offers an excellent way to unlock the full appraised value of a property, allow for significant tax and economic advantages, and at the same time, build a charitable legacy through support of your favorite causes.
Contributing closely-held securities can be a cost-effective way to maximize your philanthropic options while minimizing tax liabilities.
Tangible personal property
We accept tangible gifts of property, including art, antiques and more.
