Ways to Give

Gifts that go to work immediately:



Leave a lasting legacy. Establish a fund through your will or testamentary trust.


Charitable remainder trust, pooled income funds, & gift annuities:

The donor and/or other named beneficiaries retain a life income and earn immediate and long-term tax benefits


Designation of Retirement Plan Assets:

Revocable, flexible way to give, using an expensive asset for a family member to inherit


Life Insurance:

Have a Life Insurance Policy which is no longer needed? Name the Rush County Community Foundation as owner and/or beneficiary of an insurance policy. The proceeds will be used to establish a future charitable fund!
