Making a gift to the Southfield Community Foundation is both simple and rewarding. The Foundation enables all donors, regardless of their ability to contribute, to become philanthropists. The Foundation accepts gifts in many forms. As you consider your philanthropic plans, please consider a gift to one of the Foundation's Permanent Funds.

Donations can be made by:

Check. Please make checks out to "The Southfield Community Foundation" and indicate the designated fund on the memo line.

Credit Card. Please include your name, address, credit card number, expiration date, gift amount, gift designation and signature.

Stock Transfer. Gifts of appreciated stocks make particularly effective donations, as you avoid paying capital gains tax and receive a charitable gift deduction and/or credit based on the market value of the securities. Please contact the Foundation (248-351-1320) for a stock transfer form.

Gifts-In-Kind. The Foundation would be pleased to talk with you personally regarding gifts of land, art works, or other non-cash items.

Deferred or Planned Gifts. Please consult with your tax or estate advisor and contact the Foundation.

Bequests. The Foundation can be named in your will for a specific gift, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate. Bequest wording should include the foundation's full name and mailing address. The Southfield Community Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation.

Our Federal Tax Identification Number is 38-291-8048. Gifts to any of the Foundation's Permanent Funds qualify for both a Federal Tax Deduction (Itemized Return) and the Michigan State Tax Credit for gifts to Community Foundations.
