Have you ever searched for the perfect gift – one that keeps on giving long after the wrapping paper and gift bags have been discarded? Giving a gift in someone’s name is an amazing way to pay tribute to someone you love, and is a special way to give a gift that is more impactful than any physical item could ever be. A donor-advised fund through Christian Community Foundation is a prime example. A donor-advised fund is an amazing gift opportunity that will reap benefits for years to come.
Giving money in someone’s name is a simple process. Our funds are fully customizable, regarding how you would like to name them. A fund can be created in honor of a loved one, as a gift to a friend, as an example of charity for your children, or for any other purpose you see fit.
You might be asking, “Is giving money in someone’s name actually a good gift?” We believe so. When you create a donor-advised fund for someone, you’re not just making a donation in someone’s name. You’re empowering someone to dole out funds to an organization that’s close to his or her heart. It’s more than writing a check, it’s supplying the opportunity to practice generosity.
A charitable act of this magnitude will cause a positive rippling effect throughout the community, far beyond the person you choose to name the fund after. One of our primary goals at the Christian Community Foundation is to help guide our donors in the right direction, so they can be a blessing in our community.
So, if you ever notice yourself struggling to find a way to properly pay your respects to a special person in your life, consider creating a donor-advised fund in their name! Romans 12:10 states, “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” There aren’t many better ways to abide by this word of Christ than by using a worthy individual’s name as a vessel to bless others!
