Giving is satisfying. When you give something bigger than yourself, all kinds of doors begin to open.

How to Give

Making charitable contributions is an art, a creative process that adapts to the changing needs and wishes of the donor.

Planned giving enables a donor to arrange charitable contributions in ways that maximize his or her personal objectives while minimizing the after-tax cost.

Anyone can donate to any existing fund through the Scott County Community Foundation at any time. Whether your passion is education, the arts, historic preservation, youth, elderly. faith or the community — giving is a simple process that will directly benefit others.
