Start a Fund

You can use GLF to create a named fund to make donations you recommend, a memorial fund, a scholarship, or a fund dedicated to a given nonprofit or charitable cause. Donations can be made to any qualified charity here or anywhere in the U.S.

Once charitable funds are established with tax-deductible gifts, GLF handles the accounting, audit, reporting, gift acknowledgement, record-keeping, fund distributions, tax filing and investment oversight — all for a modest annual fee.

After your endowment fund is established, it can last forever. You can designate children and even grandchildren to help advise your fund in the future. And you can use any type of asset to create your personal fund — stocks, property, life insurance, pension assets, even non-cash gifts, all of which will receive the highest tax deduction allowed.

Some charitable funds are created via bequest or other planned giving vehicles, providing a wonderful way to ensure that you will always be a part of this community that you love.

The GLF Legacy Society has been created to recognize individuals who are leaving bequests to the Foundation or any of the funds it manages. If you are leaving such a gift in your will, please let us know, so we can include you in the Legacy Society activities.

To learn more, please contact Mike Rawl at GLF at 302-644-0107 or c/o GLF, PO Box 110, Lewes, DE 19958.
