Endowment Fund

The principle continues to grow and TCF can draw from it for funding community initiatives each year. An endowment gift perpetuates your values and priorities, extending them for future generations.


Monthly Giving

Make a small, automatic donations every month. You choose how much to give and for how long, and you can change your amount or cancel at any time.


Qualified Charitable Distributions

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD), otherwise known as IRA charitable rollovers or IRA gifts, are a great way to support our community by allowing your dollars to go further: QCDs may be excluded from your taxable income and qualify towards your required minimum distribution (RMD). If you are 70 ½ or older, you can donate up to $100,000 per tax year directly from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to The Community Fund of Darien.


Life Insurance Policy

Naming TCF on a retirement account or life insurance policy is a simple way to provide for TCF's future without writing or re-writing your Last Will and Testament.
