Becoming a Donor

We are a local organization with deep roots in the community.  Our professional staff has broad expertise regarding community issues and needs. We provide personal service by working with local professional advisors to tailor to each individual’s charitable and financial interest.  Our funds help people invest in the causes that they care most about.  We accept a wide variety of assets and can facilitate complex forms of giving.  By pooling gifts with other funds and grants, we multiply the impact of gift dollars. These dollars build endowment funds that benefit the community’s future and help create personal, lasting legacies.

We are a community leader, convening agencies and coordinating resources to create positive change.

Charitable giving can be done through a number of vehicles, some during the donor’s lifetime where the individual may take advantage of income tax reductions and at the same time, gain satisfaction from watching the income from a grant being used for the intended purpose, or after the death of the donor, having the donor’s estate, or a portion of it, managed to continue to support specific, or general activities.

For additional information and details, contact should be made with an attorney, an accountant, financial planner, or The Van Wert County Foundation.

People give THROUGH The Van Wert County Foundation, not TO The Foundation. The Van Wert County Foundation exists to serve our community. The Foundation exists to administer charitable gifts in accordance with the wishes of the donors. VWCF will continue to meet your charitable goals long into the future. What is important to the donors is what is important to The Foundation. VWCF will work with you to provide for your favorite church, school, or other charitable organization no matter where those organizations may be located.
