Variety of Giving Options – With a variety of giving options, you can achieve multiple charitable objectives through a fund at the Henderson Community Foundation. The best option for you depends on your financial situation, what you want to achieve, and how you choose to accomplish your objectives. We are happy to meet with you and your professional advisor to discuss options.
Research Causes You Care About – We gather information and track the many local agencies and programs working to enhance Henderson and the greater Las Vegas region. We can help you identify the nonprofit organizations that are making a difference in our communities and help you find the areas where you can make the greatest impact. We can research a topic or nonprofit organization in which you are interested and help you evaluate specific programs.
Due Diligence on Grantees – We conduct due diligence on all grantees. We verify their tax-exempt status and complete all necessary paperwork for grant administration. We monitor your grant dollars to ensure they are used in an optimal manner.
Grant Management and Recognition – Recommending a grant is simple. Just complete a Grant Recommendation Form, and after we complete the due diligence, and receive board approval, we send a check to the grantee. The letter accompanying your gift can say it is from your fund, but we will ensure confidentiality if you wish to remain anonymous.
Financial Reporting – At the end of each calendar quarter, you will receive a financial report on the investment returns and grantmaking activity of your fund. Since we manage the accounting and recordkeeping for your fund, we relieve you of administrative tasks and Internal Revenue Service reporting
Professional Investment Management – We provide professional investment management which enables you to make the most of your philanthropy. We manage all donor funds according to the highest standards of accountability. All of the foundation’s assets are pooled for investment management purposes, minimizing cost and increasing return. The pooled asset concept gives a small donor the same professional investment advice as a large donor and creates an economy of scale that ensures more funds go to address community issues and needs.
