types of assets we accept: gifts of now & later
We welcome gifts of cash, which includes checks and online gifts using a credit or debit card, but we also encourage donors to consider making gifts of appreciated assets. These could be securities, such as stocks and bonds or mutual funds. We also accept gifts from retirement funds, including charitable rollover gifts (click on pdf as to how to do this) to meet required minimum distributions. Plus, you can name Weld Community Foundation as a beneficiary (or secondary beneficiary) of your retirement fund, your life insurance policy or your bank or brokerage account. Be sure to designate Weld Community Foundation as the beneficiary or payee and note the desired fund name.
Some gifts will need reviewing before we can accept them. This includes gifts of closely held stock, life insurance policies that are not fully paid policies and real property, which should have a minimum value of $100,000 after sale and reasonably be sold within six months. We can also consider gifts of charitable remainder trusts or charitable lead trusts, retained life tenancy in a residence, ranch, or farm or bargain sales.
