BENEFITS OF BECOMING
PART OF THE AREA FOUNDATION FAMILY
We make it easier for you to manage your philanthropy so that you can focus on supporting your favorite causes. Our funds help people invest in the causes they care the most about. We are able to accept a wide variety of assets, including real estate, appreciated securities, cryptocurrency and others, and can work with your professional advisor to create highly effective approaches to charitable giving.
We are able to help guide your grantmaking using trust-based philanthropic principles in support of more than a dozen impact areas. Not only can we help identify an area that matches your passion, we can facilitate the application and award process, making it seamless.
We take great care to invest your funds wisely, transparently and prudently, so they will grow over time and be available for grant-making now and for generations to come. The cornerstone of our investment strategy is the preservation of capital, so funds are available for the community, regardless of market performance.
If the thought of giving, for you, extends beyond your lifetime, we can help you identify your goals and design gift options that protect assets, earn annual income, and guarantee that your charitable wishes are carried out for as long as you desire. Learn more.
