We aim to make donating tax-deductible, convenient and efficient for donors through charitable giving accounts. The Foundation allows donors to establish four basic types of funds or to give money to the Foundation’s General Fund or Crisis Assistance Fund. For more information on the benefits of setting up a fund, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contributions to the General Fund are used to support innovative programs for our growing community and to provide grants to non-profits serving the Gretna area.
Crisis Assistance Fund
Contributions to the Crisis Assistance Fund are used to support Gretna-area families and individuals who are experiencing financial hardship due to crisis or disaster events. The GCF Board does not accept direct applications for crisis assistance, but works with first responders, local churches, schools and/or non-profits to provide financial resources to individuals or families identified by these entities during times of crisis.
These funds are used to support a specific program, cause or project such as the Public
Library or Scholarships for High School and College students.
Field of Interest Fund
These funds can be designated to a particular area of charitable interest such as a health care
fund or a fund for the arts.
Donor Advised Fund
The donor maintains advisory control of their irrevocable charitable donation and works with
the GCFF and the Midlands Community Foundation to help direct distributions to
qualified charitable organizations that matter most to the donor.
These funds can be established to help local students pursue their dreams and goals at colleges, universities and trade or technical schools after high school graduation.
