Gift of Grain

Your crops are your livelihood, your life. You prepare, you plant, you nurture and it grows. That’s what we do with the charitable gifts entrusted to the Community Foundation and we invite you to grow the future of our community with us.

Why Donate Grain to the Community Foundation?

Donating a gift of grain to the Community Foundation is a simple way to make a lasting difference. The value of the grain can be used to start an endowed fund in the name of your family, for a specific nonprofit organization important to you or support the overall charitable causes in the area. No matter what type of endowment fund you choose to establish or support, you can be sure that your gift of grain is growing the future of the local area.

How You Benefit

By giving grain to the Community Foundation, you avoid including the sale of the grain in your farm income. Although a charitable income tax deduction is generally not available to you, the avoidance of declaring it as income is a significant benefit. You deduct the cost of growing the crops, which typically results in saving self-employment tax, federal income tax and state income tax. You can benefit even if you don’t itemize your deductions and take the standard deduction.
